Is it possible to create numbered lists in OneNote that have subsections?

Ex:
1. Section
1.1 Subsection
1.2 Another Subsection

I was able to figure this out for you.

Click Home

Click the little arrow to choose numbering style

enter image description here

Click Customize numbering

enter image description here

Choose the Sequence style and the Format

enter image description here

Type your content then press Enter then Backspace then Tab

enter image description here

Choose format for next section

enter image description here

To create a sub-section to the sub-section, press Enter then Backspace then Tab

enter image description here

Continue the sub-section.

enter image description here

To go back to the previous section, from the content line press Enter then Backspace twice

enter image description here

Continue that section then to return to previous section, from content line press Enter then Backspace twice

enter image description here

To go back to first section press Backspace twice again

enter image description here

Continue your section from there

As far as changing the numbering to 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc. I don't think you can. You have to choose from the predefined formats. You can choose what number to start at though from the last option on the Customize numbering window. I tried changing it to 1.1 and 1.2 but it doesn't stick

  • you can do the same process for as many subsections as you want. so you can do 1. main I. subsection A. sub-subsection. as much as you like. it will keep track of all of the numbers as you backspace to continue in a previous section. – jmc302005 Nov 4 '13 at 11:41
  • I think I understand what you're saying, but I can't seem to recreate it. – miguelarcilla Nov 5 '13 at 1:58
  • How do I choose my numbering style, then, to create 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 etc? – miguelarcilla Nov 5 '13 at 1:58

    Thanks :) I already understood the lists, but I was looking for a way to get the 1.1, 1.2 style sublists. I guess there isn't really a way yet then – miguelarcilla Nov 6 '13 at 0:45
