Greetings.

I know that lists can be continued using the following syntax:

# -----------------------------------------------------------
* First heading
  1. a list begins here
* Second heading
  2. [@2] list continues
# -----------------------------------------------------------

I find myself doing this all the time, especially when working on Beamer
slides.

Given how smart org mode is (it is!), I find manual list continuation
weird. My questions are:

a. Is there already a better way?
b. [@b] Could we have one?

It seems a little tricky to do much better.

With numbering you can do something like this where you find the last
element of the previous list, and then continue it. This won't do what you
want for nested lists I guess. For lettering, you would need to figure out
how to increment the letter. but for simple numbered lists, this might do
the trick for you.

#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
(defun auto-continue ()
  (interactive)
  (when-let (p (org-in-item-p))
    (save-excursion
      (goto-char (line-end-position))
      (goto-char (org-element-property :contents-begin
(org-element-context)))
      (let* ((lists (org-element-map (org-element-parse-buffer) 'plain-list
     (lambda (lst)
(when (eq 'ordered (org-element-property :type lst))
 (cons
  (org-element-property :end lst)
  (length (org-element-property :structure lst)))))))
    (last-list (nth (- (or (-find-index (lambda (x)
  (> (car x) (point)))
lists)
   (length lists))
1)
    lists)))
(insert (format "[@%s] " (+ 1 (cdr last-list))))
(org-ctrl-c-ctrl-c)))))

#+END_SRC

continuing one after prev list is a great idea.  then you won't get
out of sync.  dunno if feasible.

Jarmo,

John has already given you some elisp code that can help.  The other
possibility could be to use the counter macro.

See the info manual: (org) Macro Replacement
