Another Numbering Issue

Ran into this today:

I created an ordered list. I inserted an additional item within the list, and the numbers changed accordingly. Next, I indented the new item, and the number type changed to a small letter (as it’s supposed to). Then, I decided to remove the the new item. I highlighted it, and deleted it. Instead of the numbers returning to their normal order, the list item after the deleted line reset to 1. So now I have a list that looks like this:

1.

2.

3.

4.

1.

2.

I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. I feel like deleting a line should cause the remaining numbers to reorder appropriately. Because of what’s happening, I have to change the list to text and then restyle as a numbered list.

If there are any tips or tricks, I’d love to hear them.

@James Trout This looks like a bug. I’d submit it as such to Guru.

Thank you! I’ll do that.
