Org-mode: Start a numbered list from any number

This trick is in the org-mode manual but it’s worth a quick mention in its own right. If you want to start a numbered list in org-mode from a number other than 1, then put [@N] at the start of the first item, where N is the number you want to start with. So for example,

 1) item 1
 2) item 2

This text would interrupt the list and the next item would be 1) on a
new list

 3) [@3] This will be item 3 thanks to [@3]
 4) and this will be item 4
