Using lists

3 weeks ago1 min read
  • To generate numbered steps (an ordered list) use the following syntax:

    . step 1 text
    . step 2 test
    . step 3 text
  • To keep numbered steps flowing correctly when code blocks, images or admonitions are used inside steps, use the + on the line before the block starts to indicate the block is part of the step above:

      . Step one
      . Step two involves some code
      +
      [source, shell]
      ----
      some code
      ----
      . Step three is still in number order
  • Use ordered lists for steps in a process. All other lists should be unordered.

  • Capitalize the first word of each item in a list.

  • If the text in the bullet is a full sentence or completes the intro stem use a period at the end.
