I recently needed to do a numbered list where I wanted to skip a number. After playing about with various options and looking at Help, I Googled and came up with this solution
Quote:
Though it's somewhat painful, you can skip numbers entirely and start numbering where you want. What you have to do is hit enter after you last numbered item. Then you go to Format >Bullets and Numbering... and click on the "remove" bottom at the bottom of the dialog box that appears. This terminates your current numbered list. Then you go back to this dialog and create a new numbered list and start it at whatever number you want. This is done on the "options" tab, where it says "Start at".

This method is doable, but has some potential side effects. For example, if you add a point to one of multiple numbered lists, you would have to go back and readjust all the lists which follow it.
Would it be worth adding it to the wiki. If so where? It could have its own page and be linked (say) to Writer:Miscellaneous Tips. Advice, comments?

I would suggest adding it to the "Numbering Pages, Lines, etc." section, and renaming the Section "Numbering Pages, Lines, Lists, etc."

Had it been a blog post or tutorial, instead of a forum post, I would have suggested the External Writer Tips: Lists and Numbering, and just providing a link to the article.

Yes it's actually an OOo forum post, so I could link to that as an external link - would it be fairly secure, or is there a big risk of it being deleted/moved?

With forum posts I usually summarize or even quote in the wiki page and then provide a link to the thread, as they can be a little harder to work through the thread and get the answer needed.
