Default Paragraph numbering disappears when using {If

I have a paragraph that looks like this:



1. This document is for signature by Susan{Ask [Question] "Do you also want another document for this person? if so enter 'Yes'"}{ IF {REF QUESTION} = "Yes""

2. Document No 2 is also for signature by Susan"}
-------------

These numbered paragraphs are a personal letter list style I use.

When i carry on creating my template so that I am ready to add paragraph 3, such as:

1. This document is for signature by Susan{Ask Question "Do you also want another document for this person? if so enter 'Yes'"}{ IF {REF QUESTION} = "Yes""

2. Document No 2 is also for signature by Susan"}

3. Document No. 3 is for signature by Larry.

----------------------------

This is how it looks as soon as I select the hard return for paragraph 3.

This document is for signature by Susan{Ask Question "Do you also want another document for this person? if so enter 'Yes'"}{ IF {REF QUESTION} = "Yes""

Document No 2 is also for signature by Susan"}

3. Document No. 3 is for signature by Larry.

----------------------------------

My numbers are gone and could some sweet soul out there in the ether help me to get them back?

Hi Machineworks,

That's a limitation of using IF fields - if you have numbered paragraphs within them, the numbering sequence either (a) disappears when you attach them to the end of the preceding paragraph (ie your para 1); or (b) continues as if they're there even when not displayed when they're attached to the start of the next paragraph (ie your para 3).
