Great thanks, thats what I was looking for. Though not a 'perfect' solution, its one that I can deal with for now.
I think that's it impossible to let the numbering simply continue. You can however start the next list where you left of in your snippet. Select the number and right click. Select Bullets and Numbering. Check Restart numbering at and select the number you want your list to continue. Note that you'll have to change all these lists when you add an extra step in your snippet
Some other options you may consider:
- Can you split the lists with a header or something? Something like: This consists of two procedures, 1. Your snippet and 2. Your 'hard' text.
- Are these steps basic steps? If so, you can use a variable like: First, do x. and set that variable in your list. You then set these first five steps as basic knowledge in a getting started tutorial and reference that tutorial.
