Numbered lists break when you remove the numbering function from lines in the sequence that do not need to use numbers.

Numbered lists break when you remove the numbering function from lines in the sequence that do not need to use numbers.

How do you make a numbered list that includes lines (and graphics, figure numbers etc) that do not need to be numbered? My experience is that all lines have to have them.

If I remove the numbers from the lines I don't want them on, the following lines start renumbering from 1, which is pretty useless.

The only fix is to add them manually, but this isn't what I want to do. Before V4 I could force them to work in wiki markup, this is not an option in V4.

Cheers,

Press SHIFT+ENTER to add a line between a two items on a numbered list.

Matt,

Thanks, that worked. It's great when you're creating the list from scracth, but not so handy if you've got imported pages where the numbering already existed. All ours have changed so that after each graphic and title, the numbered list reverts to 1.

To get arund this I've had to de-number the list apart from the first one, then move all the steps above the grpahics as renumber them. As I did this I used Chift+Enter to create spaces for the graphics and figure numbers. I then added these back as appropriate. Which is a pretty tedious process and I have dozens of these to to.

I'm lookng for volunteers... :)

Thanks again.
