Have a greek numbering style in an English Word

Guest

Hi

I'd like to write a greek document, but we don't know how to have a numbering style which has the look : α,β,γ...
We are limited to a,b,c and no other unicode characters are allowed

We search for any techniques : fields manipulation (listnum, seq...), style modification or VBA code

Thank

To start the numbering sequence with α, insert the following field
construction

{ SYMBOL { SEQ Greek \r945 } \u }

then for the balance of the letters insert

{ SYMBOL { SEQ Greek } \u }

each time you use that, the next letter in the alphabet will be inserted.

You could create a couple of autotext entries to facilitate their use.

Hi, thanks for your answer, it works good
I have created several fields seq and several fields symbol

I have another problem, I can not restart the numbering of the field after title1.

ex : a. title
A) title1.
B) title1.
b. title
A) title1.1 Do you have an idea on how to restart at this value A)

Thank

You would use the \r switch again. If you assign an "un-numbered" heading
style to the a. and b., then you may be able to use the \s switch.

Do a seach in help on SEQ field to see how to use the various switches.
