    Managing numbered lists

    I have lots of numbered lists. I often want to copy some text and make it the next numbered item. I must not know how to do it properly because it's a major pain in the butt. One oddity is that the last single character in the copied text must be omitted. How is this done correctly?

    To add a piece of copied text to a list you copy your text and then go to your list, go to the end of your last numbered item in the list, press enter to generate the next number, then paste the copied text.
    Most lines of text have a hidden paragraph mark at the end of the line which generates a new line and line number. By not highlighting the space at the end of the line you are able to avoid this. Tricky, I know.
