Prefix Word (For a List Item)

Holds a word such as “Step” or “Procedure” that is to be added to the beginning of each item of a list


Display Note: Any prefix word is in addition to and typically precedes any prefix characters (numbers, bullets). For example, a list type of “order” and a prefix word of “Step” would produce: “Step1. aaaa”, “Step2. bbbb”, “Step3. cccc”, etc. Note that typically, no white space follows the inserted word, i.e., “Step” rather than “Step ”.

The standard exception to this order is the bulleted list, in which the prefix character would precede the prefix word—“• Step” rather than “ Step•”.
