yes, it is possible.

You have to write your own CSS where you redefine the ol and li definitions with your own customized counters.

If you are familiar with that you can give it a try. Otherwise it is probably much too much hassle.

hi Steffen

yes, CSS, but where? in some macros ?

When I enter "Edit" mode there's on place to change it.

Or I have to have admin privileges to see hidden place in confluence ?





What do you want to change: The wiki page or the PDF export of it?

For the wiki page:

  • Click Edit
  • Include the {style} macro (start typing "{sty.." and it should automatically complete it to "CSS Stylesheet")

  • Enter CSS code

For PDF export:

  • Go to PDF Export Stylesheet
  • Enter CSS code

For the CSS itself check pages like to get an idea what it needs to make it work (if it does at all!)
