Working with Numbered Lists in Google Docs
Google Docs is a great, cloud-based word processing application to Microsoft Word. Much like Word, Google Docs offers a standard feature set for creating documents. One of those features is numbered lists.
Number lists are easy to work with within Google Docs. If you would like to create a new numbered list, click the icon in the toolbar with the numbers '1, 2, and 3' followed by lines after those numbers in its icon. This will create a new, empty numbered list.
Likewise, if data is already entered into a Google Doc (Eg. The steps for a recipe), highlight that data and then press that same icon mentioned above. That will convert those steps into a formatted numbered list. Each entry in that numbered list will need to be on a new line. For instance, if you highlight an entire paragraph to convert to a numbered list, that entire paragraph will become line number 1 (it won't separate each sentence in a paragraph into different steps).
Should you want to customize your numbered list, click on any number in that numbered list to highlight it. Then right-click that highlighted number. A menu will appear with various options to customize that numbered list.
