# Re: How to get a modified Enumerate style?

Hi,

I need to write an description for an algorithm in my paper, which includes
several steps . Basically the Enumerate style will fit my purpose. Except
that I want a sequence like this:

Step 1 ...
...
Step 2....
...

1. .....
...
2. .....
...

Any method could achieve this style? Thanks in advance!

Here's a way to do it:


-Put the statement "\usepackage{enumerate}" in your document->settings->LaTeX-Preamble (of course without quotation marks)


-At any point you want to start your enumeration do not use enumerate style, simply add some TeX-Code (Crtl+L): "\begin{enumerate}[Step 1]". The statement in squared brackets is a prototype for your enumeration item, for other options google the docs of the enumerate package.


-In front of every item you want to enumerate, add again some TeX-Code: "\item " (the blank character is needed)
