I’ve typed the headings for a number list, 1-10. Now I want to add extra text under each heading. How!!? Every time I hit return, I get a new list item. Also, the tenth item has number 0, instead of 10. Thanks in anticipation… Regards. The blog I need help with is bhpetanque.org.

Needed to refresh. :) December 31, 2011 at 3:17 pm #787024 brightonpetanqueMember Many thanks for such immediate help! Shift/Enter does indeed work – is there any tutorial on basic list formatting where such tricks are explained?

BTW the numbering problem – which showed up in the editor – had luckily vanished when published :-) Have a good year. Regards. Author Posts The topic ‘List formatting basics’ is closed to new replies.
