Hallo Daniele,
you will have to lear about Styles and Counters.
E.g. here is example, where the text you enter by hand is quoted to show 
the automatic numbering:

1 "Section 1"
2 "Section 2"
3 "Section 3"
3.1 "Subsection 3.2"
3.2 "Subsection 3.1"

this can be done by:
= Enter Option 1 in a new cell. Set the style of this cell to e.g. Section
= Click at the beginning of the new cell (just before "O") and choose 
from the menue "Input/Create Automatic Numbering Object...". Choose 
"CounterType" as Section and hit the button O.K. This should give a "1" 
before "Option 1.
= Enter Option 2 in a new cell. Set the style of this cell to Section
= Click at the beginning of the new cell (just before "O") and choose 
from the menue "Input/Create Automatic Numbering Object...". Choose 
"CounterType" as Section and hit the button O.K. This should give a "2" 
before "Option 2.
= similar for Option 3
= now the subsections. Enter Option 3.1 in a new cell. Set the style of 
this cell to Subsection
== Click at the beginning of the new cell (just before "O") and choose 
from the menue "Input/Create Automatic Numbering Object...". Choose 
"CounterType" as Section and hit the button O.K. This should give a "3" 
before "Option 3.1.
== insert a period after the section humber
== Choose from the menue "Input/Create Automatic Numbering Object...". 
Choose "CounterType" as Subsection and hit the button O.K. This should 
give a "1" after the section number
== similar for the rest

sincerely, Daniel
