I didn't see Win's post, but I use SEQ fields, with a few twists, to solve this.

First I create two autotext entries. One, named step1, is something like {seq stepno /r 1}.
I use this to assign the step number 1 to a paragraph. The second autotext, named stepn, is something like {seq stepno}. This just increments the previous value of the sequence named stepno.

Next create a menu item or keyboard shortcut or toolbar button to insert each autotext.

Finally, create a style for the numbered text.
