Hello, I don’t know if this has been requested/informed already. With the latest versions of Joplin, I’m realising the app tries to be too smart in terms of the way it number the list I create, as Microsoft Word does, which is a bit annoying from my point of view.
So if for example I create a numbered list as follow:
everything looks good, but if I want to introduce a bunch of text in between, or under specific conditions, even if I’m specifying the next number is e.g. 4, the preview reset the numbered list to 1 again. E.g. try to create a note with the following content:
1. bla bla bla
the preview shows:
I think it should be much better if the preview just shows the numbers I’m hard-coding in the MD as it allows to create multiple numbered list (one inside others) without having to fight with the way the preview understand the list.
Many thanks and congrats for such a great app, latest releases are simply awesome.
Hmm, you are only partly right, but I agree that this automatic numbering is annoying. Maybe there’s a way to use a setting for that. I’m not sure why this auto-numbering happens. @laurent, is this built into the markdown-html rendering?
Anyway, here’s how it looks in my Joplin:
However, if you use empty lines before and after the text, the auto-numbering occurs:
I think it also happens if you use the ``` to mention special code in between the numbered list and I use it quite a lot. I'm not in front of my laptop to test it right know but almost sure it happens under this situation too.
For Markdown issue, the best is to try on https://markdown-it.github.io/ If it’s rendering in one way there, and in a different way in Joplin, there’s probably a bug in Joplin. Otherwise, it’s working as expected.
