Number list discontinuity (when expanded and/or collapsed)



Steps to reproduce

Create a numbered list (with parent and child)

Expected result

The numbers on the list keep the same numbers whether expanded or not.

Actual result

The numbers on the list change when the list is partially expanded.





OS: Windows 7 and Windows 10
Browser: Chrome (latest version)

Did a quick test (latest version web) and can’t seem to repro it.

Am I missing something?


Not that I can think of. I have disabled all extensions to see if it is related to any errant extensions. Anyway, I will test again.



Thanks much in advance!


I have the same problem. When I collapse the list the numbers are all consecutive, but when i expand items, the numbered items following the expanded items start at 1.


I am experiencing this bug as well, also on Windows 7 and Chrome.

Sorry for the late reply, I still can’t repro it. Do you guys mind showing some screenshots of the discontinued numbering? You can blur out the text. I wonder if there’s something special about the structure of the list that would make the bug appear.

Also, is your number list the document itself, or a list item inside a document?


Here’s a gif showing the behaviour. It appears the same way on my Mac with Chrome, and on my Android phone.



I see. I initially tried on the desktop app, but it looks like it only happens on the web app.

Most likely a recent Chrome update broke this…

We have tracked this bug on our todo list, and will fix it as soon as we can! Thanks again for letting us know. I’ll update here when it’s fixed.


Great, thank you! :slight_smile:

Looks like it’s a Chrome 67 bug and will be fixed when 69 gets released to the public:
