Answer

If you have existing text that you want to reformat into a numbered list: 

  1. Highlight the existing text.
  2. Right click while still highlighted
  3. Scroll down to Numbering, and hover over the arrow to see the Numbering Library options
  4. Make your numbering choice by clicking on it. 

If you do not have existing text:

  1. On the ribbon, click on the number command.
  2. The text entered after this will be in the format of a numbered list.
