I have some numbered lists in Lyx with 4 levels of indentation. On the first level there are numbers (1,2,3,....), on the second small letters ( (a),(b),(c),...), then Roman numbers (i, ii, iii,...) then capital letters (A,B,C,...).

I would like to remove all the symbols (letters, Roman numbers...) from the 2nd level on, or to substitute them with an unique symbol, such as "-". Is it possible to do so in Lyx?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.

Are you using enumerate to make the lists? You can use itemize lists instead to switch to symbols. An example of how you are making the list will be helpful in addressing the problem. – mythealias Oct 28 '12 at 11:45

Use List | Description and then simply type a symbol you like, like a hyphen or mdash, and then a space, and you are there. Space alone (i.e. no symbol) does not work this way, though.
