I need the following kind of chapter titles (Heading 1)


Part A blahblahbla


where "A" is the regular number but prefixed by the static text "Part". Is there any way in Pages to accompilsh this? The only thing I am able to do is either have "A" etc or a textbullet ("Part") but not the combination of both. And lower level headings (2, 3, etc) should not be prefixed by the word "Part" of course.


Any help deeply apreciated

    Are you taking about the Style drawers Heading options or are you talking about List options?

    The first is a style and you have to do the actual writing yourself and apply the style. The Heading styles are also used when creating a Table of Contents


    If you are trying to use Lists for your headings there isn't any option to add a word before the number. In that case you have to do all manually.


    You can't combine the Style heading with the List feature

    There are Text bullets which would allow you to start with "Part" but you can't then combine that with numbered lists in the following indent of the line.


    I can't imagine that it will be such a burden to have to label this level manually, or simply omit the redundent "Part". The division should be obvious from the context.


    It is something I find totally redundant in tutorials when people repeatedly label things Step 1, Step 2, Step 3 etc. They are just 1, 2, 3 etc and obviously steps, or whatever else you want to describe them.


    Imagine adding "Point" in front of every • bullet. "Dash" in front of every -.

    Yesss, but how about "Appendix A", "Appendix B", etc.? Would love to be able to define a style and have that be automatic.

    If the Appendixes are a series, you should b able to do that with a list style, just not available in the header/footer but then how hard is to change the A to B, once?
