I am creating a long list with many (>50) references to previous list numbers in Google Docs. Here is a simplified example:

  1. Do A
  2. Go to B
  3. Wash C
  4. Pick up D
  5. Clean E
  6. Repeat Step 2
  7. Buy F

If I delete "1. Do A" the list renumbers, but "Repeat Step 2" does not change to "Repeat Step 1". Is there a way to create a reference or variable in Google Docs to automatically change "6. Repeat Step 2" to "5. Repeat Step 1" when the first step is deleted?
