I haven't used RoboHelp in several years so this isn't a response that will
solve your question within RoboHelp. Rather this is a response to the idea
of including numbering within a snippet.

In the recent past, I ran into a similar issue with Confluence and snippets.
I was seeing the same type of thing you describe, where every step is step
1. That's when I said to myself, "Stop including "the number" within the
snippet!" That was when it dawned on me that if I considered "the number of
the step" to be 'formatting' and to make my snippets only be content - not
including "the number" within the snippet - I could use the content in any
situation.

In Confluence, the Wiki markup would have looked like this:
# {include:_navigation_one}
# {include:_navigation_two}

Where the text in the _navigation_one snippet = Go to Path 1 > Path 2 & the
text in the _navigation_two snippet = Click <name_of_button>, I would see
this:

1. Go to Path 1 > Path 2
2. Click <name_of_button>.

I can reverse that order (not that I would, but just for illustrative
purposes)

# {include:_navigation_two}
# {include:_navigation_one}

And see this:

1. Click <name_of_button>.
2. Go to Path 1 > Path 2

Same principle can be applied to text within Word.

I have the same thing, but in the output everything is good. So I don't mind
the quirk; it reminds me that it is a snippet.

Hi, all. I'm using RH11 in a Win 7 environment.
When I enter autonumbered steps in a snippet, they work fine.
When I import that snippet into a topic, the numbers don't increment.
Every step is step 1.
Is there a way to fix this?
Thanks!
