Currently when the line begins with any number and dot (“123456789. ”) or spaces and number and dot ( “ 123456789. ”), Agenda deletes the number and replaces it with padded “1.” It forces a numbered list on the user.
There is no way to opt out, selecting “None” for list style will only delete the “1. “ and will create another list starting with “1. “ if a number follows it, until there is no number left. Putting a non-breaking space doesn’t help. It’s extremely frustrating. If there is a way around this, it should really be more user discoverable.
I can’t imagine a use case, where a user might want an arbitrary number replaced with “1.”.
Possible temporary hotfix:
Only convert to numbered list if the line starts with number “1”. Any other number would not start a numbered list. Covers all cases, but “1.” (what if I don’t want a new ordered list even when my line starts with “1. “)?
- Replace “1." lists with “1)”. While there could be frequent uses for “1.” style outside of numbered lists, it’s quite unlikely to see the line start with “1)” in other context. Normally brackets come in pair.
- Internal change. I understand you don’t use markdown, so maybe you can put some invisible symbol so when user manually chooses to change the style to “None”, then respect that choice and allow the line to start with “1.” without forcing an ordered list.
