Defining List Styles

Scroll Word Exporter allows you to define up to eight levels of numbered and bulleted lists. You can control the indentation, define the bullets and numbering format, change font-size or font-style, and much more. 

To control the output of lists you have to create a new style for every level as described below. The following table gives an overview about the name of the styles in your Word template:
