      Description

      Question from the Word team at Microsoft:
      The text:continue-list attribute of <text:list> seems to imply that some list A can reference any list B within the document, even if the two lists have different list styles associated with them.

      For example, let's assume that List A uses the format "1,2,3..." and List B uses the format "A, B, C...". If List B references the ID for List A for continuation, does that mean my document will look like the following?

      1. List A
      2. List A
      3. List A

      [random text]

      D. List B
      E. List B
      F. List B

      Also, if I add another list item at the end of List A, does that mean the values in List B will automatically increment? So something like:

      1. List A
      2. List A
      3. List A
      4. List A

      [random text]

      E. List B
      F. List B
      G. List B

      Let me know if you need more clarity on this.
