Hi Ed,

Create a new numbered style using n=1 and call that style Restart. Use
Restart whenever you start a new numbered list. In the "Next Paragraph
Tag" menu (Paragraph Designer > Basic Properties), select the numbering
style that should follow the Restart style (i.e., for numbers 2 through
xxx), that way when you press the return key, the Restart style will
automatically seque into the normal numbering style.

Hope this helps,
