    To get the paragraph numbering:

    1. Access a paragraph from the paragraph collection using Paragraphs property of the RangeBase class.
    2. Get the list formatting specified for the paragraph using ListFormat property of the Paragraph class.
    3. Access list template of the paragraph using Template property of the ListFormat class.
    4. Get the name of the list template using Name property of the ListTemplate class.
    5. Display the paragraph numbering on the console.
      C#
      Copy Code
      //Get paragraph numbering
      ParagraphCollection pars = doc.Body.Sections.First.GetRange().Paragraphs;
      Console.WriteLine("Numbering template for the first paragraph: " + 
          pars[0].ListFormat.Template.Name);

    3. Access a paragraph from the paragraph collection using Paragraphs property of the RangeBase class.
    4. Get the list formatting specified for the paragraph using ListFormat property of the Paragraph class.

      C#
      Copy Code
      //Set paragraph numbering
      ParagraphCollection pars = doc.Body.Sections.First.GetRange().Paragraphs;
      // A ListTemplate is used to assign ListFormat/numbering to paragraphs
      ListTemplate myListTemplate = doc.ListTemplates.Add(
          BuiltInListTemplateId.NumberArabicParenthesis, "myListTemplate");
      //Set the ListFormat for the paragraphs
      Paragraph p1 = pars[0];
      p1.ListFormat.Template = myListTemplate;
      Paragraph p2 = pars[1];
      p2.ListFormat.Template = myListTemplate;
