I'd be really interested in how to do this too. I've had to manually edit the HTML for most of my lists simply to accommodate tables and figures within the flow. It's a real pain....
Just tried this in RH7 WYSIWYG:
Shift + Enter at the end of a list item preserves the indentation without restarting the numbering. Then you can hit Enter for a hard return and get the next number in the list. (The soft returns give you <br> tags in the HTML.) Seems like a bit of a hack, but if it works...
There's no auto/quick/easy way; go into the code and remove the </OL> tag that RH added, thinking you wanted to end the list when you really didn't, then remove the <OL> tag at the list's resumption. Also, remove any <LI></LI> tags on any element you don't want numbered.
If you know beforehand that you will want perhaps a bulleted list nested inside an ordered list, you can accomplish it easily using the following process.
Create your initial list, but don't number it quite yet.
Press Enter after the step where you want the bulleted text to begin, then add the lines that will be bulleted.
Select part of the beginning line and part of the last, then apply numbering. At this point, everything is numbered, but don't sweat that.
Now select the section that should be bulleted and click Edit > Move > Right. (Or click the Increase Indent icon on the toolbar) The numbering should reset and you should have a numbered list inside a numbered list.
Now change the inner list to a bulleted list.
