"Editing" does not include copy editing

list with 4 numbered items, then a break while protagonist explains why she's adding more, then added items starting with 1Or so I must conclude when I see a page like this in a book that lists one person and two companies under "editing".

A good copy editor should have caught this. This is how a computer - in this case Vellumâ„¢ - does lists. (Though with just a bit of work you can make most of them resume with 5.)

No actual person scribbling notes on paper does this. Not even after several days would you add to your list with 1 again.
