FAQ: When you start TBB, if starter text is 1, then the next will be 2, 3, 4. if starter is a, or A, next will be b, c, d, or B, C, D.
But you break the sequence by entering a custom text, here is 1, then the next will be just your custom text 1. If you want to trigger a new sequence, you have to enter 2, then TBB will know 3, 4, 5 will be the next.
Similar to a, b, c or a1, a2, a3. That mean, once you break the sequence, you have to enter 2 continuous item of to create a new sequence.
