### how to automatically number frames / side notes / marginalias in writer?

I want to number all the paragraphs in my document. The numbers should be on the outside of the page / margin. For that purpose, I manually insert frames at the beginning of the each paragraph. Is there a way to assign numbers automatically for all the frames? or automatically assign numbered frames to each paragraph?

I have tried list numbering in the frames and numbered headings. However, the numbering breaks up if I insert a new frame in between written paragraphs with numbered frames.

One can see what I want to do in german law books. Each paragraph has a number at the beginning. I am also open to suggestions of possible answers regarding numbering paragraphs in another way / apart from frame numbering.

Thanks for the responses.
