Following is the code for a self-defined list environment "Miscellaneous Examples"

\newtheorem*{misc}{Miscellaneous Examples}

    \begin{enumerate}[label=\thechapter.\arabic*., font=\bfseries, ref=\thechapter.\arabic*, itemsep=1.5ex]

While writing a book, this environment is called a number of times. What I need is to continue the numbering over different appearances in the same chapter. Precisely what I want is the following:

    \item Bla

    \item Bla

should generate

Miscellaneous Examples

1.1. Bla

Miscellaneous Examples (continued)

1.2. Bla

The presence of the note/comment [continued] should not have any effect on the numbering. How do I achieve this?

  • @schtandard, not really. Because I have other enumerated lists before the reappearance of the same environment. Commented Mar 3, 2020 at 8:40
  • @Sango your suggestion seems fine. But is there any way to include this inside the definition of the environment? Also, I have added an MWE. Commented Mar 3, 2020 at 8:44
  • In one of the answers there (tex.stackexchange.com/a/230004) the counter settings are done within the environment definition, this should also work in combination with enumitem options.
