Dynamic lettered bullets complication RRS feed

  • Question

  • Maybe a simple question, but I am editing a very large technical directive (150 pages) witha  long list of references.  Of course, I want to make the list dynamic so that I don't have to re-letter them every time I add or delete a reference.  

    The problem is that, due to the strict rules of formatting in my organization, the bulleted list must start on the same line as "Ref:   (a) ..."

    Is it possible to have a real numbered (lettered) list that looks like this, particular emphasis on the complication of the "Ref:" before the list?

    Ref:   (a) BlahA

             (b) BlahB

             (c) BlahC

    Use a 2 column Table no borders. "Ref:" Column 1 and (a) numbering Column 2.

  • Do you mean you have to type "Ref:" followed by the sequence numbers? The tables suggestion is good. You could also use the {SEQ} field code to generate your numbers. It is the predecessor function to the bullets and numbering feature

    This page has an example of what you are doing:
