I am just beginning to play with the SE - but one thing I could see being helpful for MY approach to sermons is something akin to MSW's "continue sequence" option.

At present, it appears if I start a numbered list (which I usually preach from) and then come to a key point which I would like a slide for... i would then do a return and choose H1. BUT, when i then hit return and choose numbered list there is only one option.. a numbered list that begins again from 1. 

It would be nice (at least for my style of preaching notes) to have the option to choose "continue sequence" and have the list number of the list under H1 be "3." I know I can do this manually but auto numbering would be nice.

Pretty please?

If I understand what you're asking for, you would like to have something similar to what Word and other processor's have. Start the new list and then right click and have the option to continue numbering from the previous list. That may be a good option to have,

However, you do not have to change to Heading 1 in order to add slides from the text of you sermon outline. If you highlight the text you want on a slide, or click on the point, you can then click the "Add'slides from selected text" button and slides will be inserted for that point without leaving the number list you are working in.

I had the same problem with continues numbering if I added a normal text paragraph under the numbered item and wanted to continue the numbering after the text paragraph.

I noticed though that if you increase the indent of the normal text paragraph and deactivate the numbered list item in order to turn the paragraph in a normal (indented) text paragraph, I can continue the started numbered list after the indented text paragraph by decreasing the indent of the new paragraph and reactivating the numbered list item. I figured that it is a matter of playing with the indent and deactivating/activating numbering to achieve the desired result.

Maybe this helps.
