How to "edit" a numbered list? Edited

Hi all, 

I hope someone will have a solution for my numbered list issue.

Here is what I want to do when writing steps in a user guide:

1. do this step 1

2. do this step 2

3. do this step 3

[I put image/table/note... here]

4. do this step 4

5. do this step 5

But that's what I get in Confluence: 

1. do this step 1

2. do this step 2

3. do this step 3

[I put image/table/note... here]

1. do this step 4

2. do this step 5

 

So, how can I have a numbered list with "personalized start number" if you can see what I mean?

Thanks a lot!

Hello @Donia 

In order to keep the numbering of the list, you need to press 'SHIFT + ENTER'; this will add a new line below a number where you can enter additional text/ note or image. But this will not allow you to add a table. Table would be added at the end of the list.

Please refer to the screenshot, capturing this use case.

Also, there is an open issue with Atlassian for this use case - CONFCLOUD-7794

Kindly let me know if this helps.
