Is there a way to create multiple levels of bullets in a list? Basically a list so you have one bullet and then the next bullet is indented further in? Kind of like:

* First bullet starts here
--------* Second bullet starts here

In reply to Briel (msg # 1):

Let's find out:

A list of treasure items for a steampunk setting:

  • A downed airship which contains:
    • A partially discharged tank of hydrogen
    • A box of Montezuma Maduro Panetela Cigars
    • An alcohol lamp full of alcohol
    • An ornately geared gold watch
  • A library on the airship contains numerous books.


Yup, looks like lists can nest.  List source below:


[list]
[*] A downed airship which contains:
[list]
[*] A partially discharged tank of hydrogen
[*] A box of Montezuma Maduro Panetela Cigars
[*] An alcohol lamp full of alcohol
[*] An ornately geared gold watch
[/list]
[*] A library on the airship contains numerous books.
[/list]

Only by creating nested lists:

[list][*]
[*]
[list][*]
[/list]
[*]
[/list]

which produces...

Here's how I do it.

Type out the list the way you want it, adding spaces to indent nested lists. It's okay for a nested list to have only one item.

Example:
1. First Item
   * Nested Item A
   * Nested Item B
   * Nested Item C
2. Second Item
3. Third Item
   * Nested Item A
   * Nested Item B

Pick one of your nested lists. Highlight it, and click the list+[*] or olist+[*] buttons below. Then delete all the extra spaces and line-feeds, you don't need them. While you're at it, remove all line-feeds from the nested list, so that they're all a single string of text.

Example:
1. First Item[list][*]Nested Item A[*]Nested Item B[*]Nested Item C[/list]
2. Second Item
3. Third Item
   * Nested Item A
   * Nested Item B


Do the same for each nested list. When you're done, the entire nested list should be a string of text attached to the end of the parent list.

Example:
1. First Item[list][*]Nested Item A[*]Nested Item B[*]Nested Item C[/list]
2. Second Item
3. Third Item[list][*]Nested Item A[*]Nested Item B[/list]


Now highlight the parent list, and click on list+[*] or olist+[*].

Example:
[olist]
[*]First Item[list][*]Nested Item A[*]Nested Item B[*]Nested Item C[/list]
[*]Second Item
[*]Third Item[list][*]Nested Item A[*]Nested Item B[/list]
[/olist]


This yields:
  1. First Item
    • Nested Item A
    • Nested Item B
    • Nested Item C

  2. Second Item
  3. Third Item
    • Nested Item A
    • Nested Item B
