Another issue: Ordered lists - start="x" attribute doesn't work. RoboHelp 2020

As above - working in the source, and added the following (because - other paragraph styles in middle of list):

 

<ol start="3">
<li>Click <span style="font-weight: bold;">Submit</span> to remove the user. Notifications are sent out to delete the user ...</li>
</ol>

 

It seems to have no effect in the output (at least, using preview), and there is no simple right-click option as in previous versions to edit numbering attributes. 

 

I assume making a change to the list style itself would be propagated through all lists with that style.

Put the cursor in the list item where you want the numbering to restart. If the General tab doesn't show automatically in Properties, click on it. There you will see a Restart Numbering field.

 

I just tested that in the middle of a list and it worked in Preview as well.

Thank you again. You have been very helpful ... although I would say that the code is broken and the basic premise (start= does not work) is true. The code now reads as follows (deleting the "start" statement did not change anything, nor did leaving it in).

<ol start="3">
<li style="counter-reset: item1 2;" value="3">

 

I do have to sympathize with the person who expressed the sentiment of being a beta tester for software. I feel like I've experienced multiple UI bugs already (some not mentioned) - and, were this currently a paid subscription, feel like Adobe should be paying me (and you double) for stuff their QA department should have uncovered prior to release.

 

Again, many thanks.

2019 and 2019 are BOTH strictly HTML5 and CSS3 compliant, I'm guessing that's the underlying reason.

 

At first the New UI is confusing but I've reached the point where using Classic is not my favourite.

Start= is still valid html code.

 

I suppose they went with a custom implementation using counters so they can just change the numbering within a single list, rather than having to stop and start the list.
