# Indenting part of a list

So I'm trying to indent a list that I have to look something like

2)
1) random stuff
2) random stuff


I'm using

    \item[2)]
\hfill \item[1)]Hello World


but it isn't working for me. I still get 1) to be directly under 2) which I want 1) to be tabbed out a little bit to show that the list is starting

If I understand your question I believe you require \subitem here is a minimal code to see if it is what you would desire.

\begin{document}
\begin{enumerate}
\item Normal
\item Normal
\subitem Indented
\subitem Indented
\subitem Indented
\item Back to normal
\end{enumerate}
\end{document}


This gives

\subitem is used in the theindex environment and its behavior is unpredictable elsewhere. –  egreg Jul 11 at 20:17

This is straight-forward with enumitem:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}% http://ctan.org/pkg/enumitem
\newlist{numbered}{enumerate}{2}
\setlist[numbered]{label={\arabic*)}}
\begin{document}
\begin{numbered}
\item First
\item Second
\begin{numbered}
\item Sub-first
\item Sub-second
\item Sub-third
\end{numbered}
\item Third
\end{numbered}
\end{document}


The list numbered above emulates enumerate with a specific label (having a right-parenthesis) and exactly 2 levels.

For an empty Second, use \mbox{}.
