Ok, sorry for confusion, now i know thanks to the last post of bolive
I definetely expect the same. A list starts with “1”, why should it start with “2”? Why should the number of first item remain the same whereas the number of the other items are changing? That makes no sense for me. Actually the question is: why should someone at all expect the current behaviour? what is its benefit?
If we were not talking about ordered list, that is, just texts or unordered list, it makes sense to keep everything when switching the order. However, people use ordered list and move things around so that what they see is truly the correct order, from lowest number to the highest number. Automatically changing the number reduces the work for the person who’s writing.
My humble opinion is that I might get confused with exactly which one I just moved. For that kind of scenario I think keeping the original number when switching the order makes sense.
For most people, however, I would think automatic renumbering helps.
I did more testing, and this odd behavior only happens when you reorder the first item. If you never reorder the first item, all lower items, as they move, will re-number correctly. As soon as you try to reorder the first item, that is when the reordering number get discombobulated.
If you have a list item toggled folding (folded) then move that up or down, it will absorb sub-bullets of other bullets. I would expect this to not be the case and that it would keep them grouped. I understand there is simplicity in treating each bullet as its own line vs forcing a group with sub-bullets, but I would expect if it is folded that it forces the grouping. Some writing apps force the sub-bullets to stay with the main even if you just move the main up or down. hopefully that makes sense. Example below of the issue:
3 … (folded)
in this example If I want to use the keyboard shortcuts to move 3 up to the top, then I would want it’s sub-bullets to stay with it. What happens now is you will end up with:
