How to auto-number steps

Open Document Inspector and select Auto-number Steps

  1. Open the Document Inspector
  2. Select Auto-number Steps

All of the steps will automatically be numbered.

Exclude steps from being numbered

If you want to prevent a step from being numbered:

  1. Open the Step Inspector
  2. Select Exclude from Auto-number
  3. The number prefix for that step will be removed

Only auto-number sub-steps

There may be situations where you don't want to auto-number the top level steps, but just the sub-steps. To do that:

  1. Open the Steps Inspector
  2. Select Auto-number sub-steps
  3. The sub-steps for that step will be numbered

I am unable to select auto-numbering subset as it is grey out. Please advise

@Steve - make sure you have a step selected. If you don't then the "auto-number substeps" checkbox won't be active.
