Quick Tip - Start an MText List with a Number or Alphabet of Your Choice

Last week I came across one of our designers using this nice trick and thought I would share it with you people. If you want to start a list inside MText window with a number or alphabet of your choice, try the following steps.
  1. Type the number or alphabet followed by a period (dot) symbol.
  2. Press the tab button after the period symbol
  3. Type the content of the first line (optional) and press enter key.

That's it. Now you will find the list starting with the number or alphabet you typed over there. Shown below is a sample list created using the above steps.

In addition to that, a little research on the subject helped me to prefix the list numbers with a custom text, as shown in the image below.

Okay, so how did you get the prefix to be added to your numbered list?

Also, do you know how to change the punctuation after the number from say a period to a parenthesis?
