Soft Breaks and Hard Breaks

Well…I'm back. 

Is Control+Enter the way to create soft returns in Multimarkdown (Composer)?

I want to insert three blank lines between two <li> in a list (line 1 is blank, line 2 holds the text or image, line 3 is blank). Pressing Control+Enter at the end of a line doesn't trigger a new number, but when I press Enter after the last blank line, numbering doesn't resume.

Here's what I'm trying to create:
1. First line of text.
2. Second line of text.

ⓘ Note: important information about Line 2 or <insert screenshot>

3. Third line of text.
4. Fourth line of text.

Probably another noob question which is obvious to everyone here.

With thanks as always,

PS oops, triggered HTML formatting. i'll try to undo.

    FYI, I do see that after I press Control+Enter, I can start a line number, in the above example, I can type 3 and then continue on with the automatic numbering. Maybe that's how it's done?

    When I look at the code in Marked2, it shows as ending Line 2 with a </ol> and the soft breaks are just "normal returns," and then it starts Line 3 with a new <ol> and starts the numbering at 1 again.
