How to create a list or an outline?

How can I create an outline in Mellel, so that it automatically numbers the outline…I.e. I. A. B. 1. 2. 

First, a short explanation: Mellel offers you the ability to create  lists of items, and also create a real outline of headings and sub-headings.

To create a list in Mellel do this:

  1. Open a new document and click the Insert/Create list button in the List palette (or press Cmd+]).
  2. Use Return and Cmd+] or Cmd+[ to increase or decrease the list level.

Creating a ‘real’ outline in Mellel is fairly simple too:

  1. Open a new document and then open the Auto-title palette.
  2. From the Setup Menu choose the setup Default (if it is not already selected).
  3. Double click the Outline level you wish to have (you have up to 10 Auto-title levels.

You can use the Cmd+Arrow Left/Right in the Outline pane to promote and demote items. You can always change the level of an item and even change the setup (which will change all the auto-title levels at once).
