1. How to Split a Numbered List

In this example, we are going to split an ordered list as is too long to repaginate and fill in the white space in the previous page.

We are going to split the list on the 6th item. To do that, we place the cursor inside that line and press the 'Enter' key twice. That will split the list.

2. How to Correct the List Numbering

Now we have to correct the items numbering in the split list as it has started from 1.

To do that select the main container of the second list and...

  • Click on any list item.

  • In the 'Inspector' section found at the top of the left sidebar, click on 'Ordered List'.

  • And in the list tool bar click on the 'Update Start From' icon.

Enter the next number in the list sequence and click on OK

Now we have the two lists with consecutive numbering.

3. Fill in the Empty Space

We can now repaginate and move a portion of the list to fill in the white space.

4. How to Split Unordered Lists

The same logic is to be applied when splitting unordered lists, however there is no need for step 2 as there are no numbers.

Let's split the list at #8. To do that place the cursor after the #8 and hit enter twice.


4. How to Merge Two (or More Lists)

If for any reason, we find that we have two or more lists that we want to join together we can do the following...

Insert the cursor inside the lower row of the first list...

... and right click on it to open the contextual menu. Select 'Merge with next'.

Both lists are merged into one

Unordered Lists
