    I hope the subject was clear enough :/

    So I created a list by using ListNum fields. My purpose is to make list that
    keeps up the numbering if I choose to change the order of the objects. I also
    want to refer to the numbers. Because of the formatting matters I didn't use
    normal numbered lists.

    What I wanted to do is to use numbers e.g. 1, 2, 3a, 3b, 3c, 4, 5, etc. .
    How can I create that kind of ListNum fields?

    Create an outline-numbered list with 1, 2, 3, ... for level 1 and a, b, c,
    .... for level 2. Then apply level 1 to text and use { LISTNUM \L 2 } to
    insert a level 2 number within the same paragraph.

    Alternatively, use SEQ fields. These give you full control over numbering,
    but the downside is that they only update semi-automatically (for example,
    when switching to Print Preview).
