In the Authoring area you pressed Enter to start the new list item and entered some text. When you changed the number in Properties to 3 did you then press Enter there?

Your image shows the item is a paragraph rather than a list item.

 

  1. Create a new temporary topic.
  2. Create a list from the toolbar and enter a couple of items.
  3. Press Enter twice at the end so that the list is stopped.
  4. Enter some text in the paragraph and press Enter again
  5. Start a new list.
  6. Can you restart the numbering in that list?

Your screenshot shows a p is selected rather than an li. I wonder if you have Autonumbering set up, rathar than lists.

I've never used it, but from a quick test, if you are, I think you need to click in every paragraph and check what number is configured for each paragraph. Delete the number for every paragraph where you don't want a custom number.
