Adding new entry to numbered list does not update numbers

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a numbered list by typing a number followed by a period and then hitting space.
  2. Add some items to the list.
  3. Navigate back up the list, insert an item somewhere in the middle.

Expected result

The numbers following the newly-inserted list entry are updated e.g. if I insert an item at position 3, the “old” position 3 now becomes position 4 (and so on for the remaining items in the list).

Actual result

The numbers below the newly-inserted item have not been updated. See screenshot for an example of this.

When you look at the Display view (not Live preview), does it show as 1, 2, 3, 4? Or does it still show as 1, 2, 3, 3?

I know in editor view, it does not update. In fact, if you convert an unordered list to an ordered list, it uses “1.” for each item. (Which is reasonable to describe as a bug in Live Preview.)
