I create a numbered list:

1. Point 1
2. Point 2

and so on. Now I realised that the content of 2 requires two paragraphs

1. Point 1
2. Point 2, paragraph 1
   Point 2, paragraph 2

but pressing enter in a list just creates a new list entry.

Shift-Enter gives a new line but not the extra space you want to separate the paragraphs (c.f., this paragraph and the previous paragraph):

1. Point 1
2. Point 2, paragraph 1

   Point 2, paragraph 2

(There is too much space in this example but you hopefully get the point.)

How can this be achieved?

  • Is there some reason you can not press shift-enter twice? – user3439894 Jan 4 at 18:55
  • Have you tried making it 2a. and 2b.? or do you not want that? – jmh Jan 4 at 19:52
  • @user3439894 Wrong line spacing. – hensti Jan 4 at 21:35
  • @jmh Don't want that. It just that some points in this list are too long for a single paragraph if they are to be comfortable to read. – hensti Jan 4 at 21:36
  • @hensti, RE: "Wrong line spacing" ... Is there some reason you cannot change the font size for the line separating the paragraphs to decrease the amount of space between the two paragraphs? – user3439894 Jan 4 at 21:37

I solved it myself. Just duplicate the current list style and make the new style without a bullet in the appropriate section of the Format sidebar. Pages is smart enough to continue the numbering on the next paragraph where it left of in the previous paragraph.

You can press space-enter twice to create the visual line break between paragraphs, and then change the font size, ⌘- for the line separating the paragraphs to decrease the amount of space between the two paragraphs.

You can also press ⇧⌘I to Show Invisibles, or click Pages > View > Show Invisibles, which may makes it easier to select the line to decrease its font size
