How to auto-number steps

You can auto-number headings in your ScreenSteps article. If you are not seeing the auto-number option, it might be because you have not selected a heading (you might have another type of content selected such as text, image, table, etc.).

The above procedure refers to old version of ScreenSteps. In the new version also, If we have an image between steps then the auto numbering gets messed up. How to automate even if an image exists?

@Roshan - the instructions in this article should be valid for all versions of our article editors. If you are seeing issues with auto-numbering can you send an email with screenshots to support@screensteps.com?
