The real issue is that the end of flow marker (the section symbol ?) ending the 
final paragraph can not be conditionalized, or more accurately, can not be 

If that final paragraph has an autonumber format, I think the solution of an 
unnumbered empty paragraph is a better choice as it seems equally possible that 
the preceding numbered paragraph will need to be in the same condition as the 
last numbered one, and you are in the same situation.

| Hi,
| When the last paragraph in a text flow has autonumbering applied,
| and you hide it with a condition, only the text part gets hidden.
| The autonumbering is still there (together with the paragraph mark).
| The only fix is to insert a paragraph (preferably with a very small
