How to stop converting certain lines in text field to lists

How can I stop Kirby from automatically converting a line of text in a text field starting with “1. Platz” (German for 1st prize) to a ordered list? Is there any workaround apart from writing it differently, like some sort of escape character?

Guess you mean a textarea field with Markdown? Yes, you can escape it like so:

1\. My first list item

Perfect, thanks!
