Screenshot of icons plus suggestions for modifications
1. Place cursor in a list paragraph.
2. Look at Bullet and Numbering bar.
Actual: "Insert Unnumbered Entry" and "Restart Numbering" appear next to each other on the toolbar (OK), but they look very similar to each other (NOK. Hard to differentiate in a quick glance, especially for Sukapura theme).
Issue (or objective) behind this request for enhancement: hard to "see" with a quick glance, which icon goes to which command, especially because they appear next to each other on the toolbar.
Attached file gives screenshots of the icons (for two themes), and makes some concrete suggestions, with examples. To summarise the attachment's main points, all aimed at making it easier to see the difference at a glance:
1. Make Sukapura bigger.
2. use Arabic, not Roman numerals.
3. Put unnumbered entry in middle of list
4. Use different numbers between ”restart” and ”unnumbered” plus use larger numbers for restart.
Whoaaa nice input
I can agree with all of these inputs, but regarding Roman selection it's closely related to how LibreOffice changes icons in RTL documents. The icons will be flipped so that the Arabic numerals get really weird.

Ok. May work ok with Roman numbers. For example, if the "Add to List" has a V and "Insert..." does not, then this might help to make it easy to differentiate them at a quick glance (without having to pay attention to the detail). Thanks.

Suggestion for Add to List

Definite improvement for "Restart numbering" and "Insert unnumbered entry"
Have attached a proposal/suggestion for "Add to List" (not part of original ticket, so I can open a new ticket if you want).
I noticed you used 4 and 5 for "Add to List", and one suggestion is to use 3 and 4, instead of 4 and 5 -- then there is no "overlap" between the three icons.
But also -- "Add to List" is a little tricky because it is possible to use this command -- with the menus -- to add a non-list paragraph to a list.
With the cursor in "non-list paragraph", you can right-click - List - Add to List, which will add this paragraph to the list as: 4. non-list paragraph.
The attachment shows a suggestion for how to represent it. If you have tried this example, then I think you will understand the attachment.
(it is tricky because you can also add an item from one list to another -- but I think the attachment (with the arrow) gives a better "cue" or "signal" for "Add to List")
The icons used for the "Restart Numbering" and "Insert Unnumbered Entry" functions should be more distinguishable from each other. The current icons look too similar and could be easily confused. Now it is time to visit https://www.essayontime.co.uk/research-paper/ for help in my essay. The icons should have different shapes, colors, or sizes to make them easier to distinguish from each other.
