How to have newlines in list items ?

I have an ordered list but I want to have a list with a newline in the middle. How can I accomplish this? All attempts so far have failed.

  1. a list item
  2. another list item
  3. a list item

with newline

  1. last list item

Obviously the above is easy to do even with the code on this forum. So what about Scrivener ?

The problem is that every time I hit enter, it thinks it’s a new item entry. I tried shift+enter, but to no avail.

Try control-enter. Does that help?

that did help. thank you
