I am trying to write out a numbered list of questions but whenever I put a space between so that I have room for answers it does this

  1. What activities do we see God doing in this passage?

  1. What things, events, people and situations is God concerned about?

  2. What does the passage reveal about the nature of salvation?

So all questions start with 1. and every time I try to edit the number it automatically switches back to number 1.

How can I fix this?

Are you using the automatic numbered list on the upper right or are you trying to do it manually? If you are manually typing the number in, I suspect the automatic detection of a numbered list is fighting you - let the program do the work.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Whichever way I try, when I try to make a gap between lines, it automatically changes the number to 1

First, type: 1.

Type a space after that.

(As soon as you type the space after it, Logos turns it into an automatically numbered item.)

Now press Ctrl+Z (or Cmd+Z on the Mac) for Undo.

(This will undo the conversion of your numbered question into an auto-numbered list item.)

Now type the question: What activities do we see God doing in this passage?

Now when you press Enter, you can press it again as many times as you want to leave blank lines in between.

Now type: 2. followed by a space.

Again, Undo the conversion into an auto-numbered item right away.

Continue on in this manner.

nl, I'm seeing the same problem. 

An additional problem with it is that the traditional method of adding an empty line between bullet points (holding the shift key when pressing enter) results in the next higher number automatically generating for a new bullet point, rather than inserting an empty line of spacing as in other applications.

It looks like a few tweaks to the auto-bullet code are in order, but Rosie has given us a nice work-around in the meantime.

That works, thanks for that!

Yes this is strange. Shift+Enter in Word inserts a line break character, not a paragraph break. Logos does not appear to have the capablilty of handling line break characters. I entered this text into Word (visible paragraph marks etc. are turned on):

Then I copied it and pasted it into a Note in Logos. It ended up in Logos looking like this. I don't know why the space at the beginning of alternate lines is there.

Then I copied that text in the Note and pasted it back into Word, and it came back as:
