Numbered lists in an article all have the number 1

For my article Finding the Office Templates folder, I pasted in text from a Word doc, which was a series of numbered lists with some images.  All the numbers changed to 1 when pasted, and I could not find a way to continue numbering.  How can this problem be fixed?

I don't think cutting and pasting from Word is strictly compatible, but now we have a new Editor, and clearly this is a bug, and would be better filed in the Support/Bugs group.

Did you select Keep Formatting when doing the copy/paste:

Froala copy-paste Keep Formatting
It worked fine here:

However, maybe the intervening screenshots in your article cause the numbering to go haywire. In any case, I agree with Andy — post a bug here:

Hi Helen,

We will try to reproduce this.  If you include the document that causes the issue with the bug report, that would help us out.

Thanks!
