Numbering and Bulleting Issue


Using Confluence Cloud and I am trying to combine both numbers and bullets within the  same section. I am having difficulty getting the numbering to continue after using a bulleted list in the same section (see screenshot). As of now, the only way around this is to simply type the numbering in manually, but that messes up the margins.

Any suggestions?

Finally found a workaround in an old question!

hit enter after line 4 which would give you 5. Hit 'tab' which will indent and turn this into 'a', then hit the bullet toolbar button (or keyboard shortcut command+shift+b) and it will become a bullet.

If you hit enter again you'll get another bullet, just press shift+tab and it will outdent and become '5', allowing you to continue in the numbered list.


Hi @Allison Beaudry 

I'm not sure it'll work but when I have problems with bullets and numbering, I make some bullets/numbering in advance then enter some text. As an example, I will create number 1 and 2 then add bullets for number 1 then create number 3 then add bullets to number 2. And so on.

Unfortunately, I can't get that method to work :(

@Allison Beaudry Could you give more information so it is easier to understand the problem? Thanks :)

When I am creating a numbered list but want to add bullets within the numbered list, it does not allow me to continue the original numbered list when adding a bulleted section after a numbered section and starts all over at 1 (see screenshot in the original post). 

I hope this is a little more clear.
