Is there any way I can make the numbering (by F12) always be in continuation of the previous one ?

Here's an example of what I do and make me crazy about


  • 1 List item
  • 2 List item


  • 3 List item
  • 4 List item


  • -> and here, if I do press F12 it will numbered at 1 instead of 5.

I know that I can right click and select "continue the previous numbering" but it's annoying to do so every time.

I'd recommend to style your list paragraph as Numbering x (x = 1 to 9) to clearly separate them from Default or Text Body. However, I did find in the styles properties (paragraph and list styles) any option to do that. An LO limitation?

Do not use the Numbering On/Off of formatting toolbar. The solution is to apply a List Style (not a Paragraph Style) as in the Continue.odt attached example.
