So, Paul, does your solution mean that I would need to make each
individual step a separate snippet?

I haven't used RoboHelp in several years so this isn't a response that

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>.
