PageMaker 6.0 Numbered Lists

I was wondering if anyone knows of a macro or trick that will automatically
number steps in a procedure using PM6? I know Framemaker will do this
easily, but in PageMaker, I it seems that I have to type in the every step.

Step 1: blah blah blah
Step 2: blah blah blah
Step 3: blah blah blah
Step N: blah blah blah

This gets really annoying when a step has to be added near the beginning of
a sequence. I have to manually go in and re-number each subsequent step.
Since our doc department has several writers using this style for numbered
procedures, a macro or some other way to automate this task would be a big
time saver.

Thanks for the help.
