Starting number of a Numbered List
At the moment there is no way to create a numbered list with a specific starting number. It would be importand to create knowledgebase pages. For example, in the middle of an action plan, I'd like to insert a picture. It requires a new image web part. The next Text web part, however will restart the numbering and I cannot continue from where I left off.
This is 101 level functionality. I need this for knowledge articles with images. It is silly functionality gaps like this that make it difficult to get buy in to SharePoint across the organisation.
Having used Salesforce in the past, I've come to expect these big software providers to chase the attention grabbing whiz-bang features whilst ignoring the base functionality that users really need.

I'm not sure how we are 2 1/2 years past this suggestion and it hasn't been addressed. SharePoint seems to hold so much promise, and then you run into a seemingly obvious and simple requirement that can't be met. Developers in the organization I work for would rather use literally ANY OTHER PLATFORM because of silly limitations such as this.
I need this functionality also. I would like to use SharePoint Online as a knowledge base with embedded content (in place of PDFs), and I need to be able to have numbered lists and images.

Incredibly frustrating that this isn't currently possible.
This is so obvious.
I am running into the exact same problem
Writing user guides is now tortuous in Modern Sharepoint,
Now you will see xxxxx
Piece of cake in Classic Sharepoint this is supposed to be progress?

We are migrating from wordpress to sharepoint and have hundreds of articles that have images strewn throughout. This function would make life so much better.

It's 2020 and I'm floored that Sharepoint O365 can't do this yet. :(
Running into exactly this problem. No way to insert an image in the middle of a text part, and no way to continue numbering at the start of a new text part.
