# Continuing list item after sublist in Lyx

I'm trying to continue a list item after existing a sublist, like so:

• Content
1. sublist
2. sublist
Continuing CONTENT...
• bla bla

For some reason when trying to write the Continuing CONTENT
I either had the option to continue the list (as in - creating another sublist item) or creating another list item (like bla bla)
Any ideas?

This is perfectly possible. You just have to switch the paragraph type of the unwanted "3." enum item back to "Standard" to continue an item of an enclosing list:

Here is the code that LyX 2.0 generates out of this:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[latin9]{inputenc}
\begin{document}
\begin{itemize}
\item Content

\begin{enumerate}
\item sublist
\item sublist
\end{enumerate}

Continuing CONTENT

\item bla bla
\end{itemize}

\end{document}

-

inside the created itemize you can go with the TAB key into a deeper one and with the SHIFT TAB key into a higher level. After "2. sublist" insert SHIFT TAB and then you are on the first level but with a new bullet. Then click on the default paragraph icon and you are in the normal paragraph mode. Now hit TAB again and you can write on the same level.

If you want to continue without a bullet you have to use the TeX mode to insert the deeper level of itemize. @Herbert: That is not true (even though badly documented), see my answer. –  Daniel Nov 8 '11 at 10:10
Then hit again SHIFT TAB and you are in the normal paragraph mode. Now hit TAB again and you can write on the same level. @Herbert: Have you tested this? At least with Mac LyX 2.0.1 it does not work (SHIFT TAB does not get you back in normal paragraph mode). –  Daniel Nov 8 '11 at 10:38
you are right, SHIFT TAB works only if you want back from the level without a bullet to paragraph mode –  Herbert Nov 8 '11 at 10:41
