FAQs

Can I start a numbered list at something other than 1?

You may want to have a numbered list that starts a number other than 1.

For example, you may enter notes like this:

5. Fifth bullet
6. Sixth bullet
7. Seventh bullet

However, Markdown will automatically start the list at 1 when it's displayed in Preceden:

  1. Fifth bullet
  2. Sixth bullet
  3. Seventh bullet

What you should do is place a backslash before each period which will cause Markdown to not automatically interpret it as a list:

5\. Fifth bullet
6\. Sixth bullet 
7\. Seventh bullet

Markdown will then correctly show it with numbers 5-7.
