    Add to a numbered list in the middle with a separate text box.

      I have a series of numbers with a numbered list in several different text boxes but in the same series of numbers. I want to add another text box because I missed several steps. Indesign numbers by order of creation. If I create a new text box in the same number series and place it where I want to inbetween two different text boxes, it picks up the last number in the series and starts numbering from there.

       

      For example:

      I have the steps

      1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and 10

      I realized i missed 3 additional steps at step 5, so I create another text box and it starts numbering at 11. So it looks like such.

      1,2,3,4,5,11,12,13,6,7,8,9,10.

       

      I have to use separate boxes as this is a training document with image so not all my lines of text are aligned in a vertical fashion down the side of my page.

       

      Thanks!
