    Using "Then" to start a sentence.

    Is it ok to start a sentence with, "Then"?

    It was for something instructional like...
    "To do this, do this, do that, do many more things. Then do this, do that, do many more things".

    I used it to break up the sentence (just once) because the instructions where very long and it was a bit long winded. If I would have used a full stop, it would have looked like I was possibly referring to another set of instructions.

    Thanks,
    Leon.
