there. I am trying to build a list like this in LyX, but I CANNOT. I need to write something after 1.

enter image description here

Any idea to do this in LyX? I can do it in LaTeX using code. Thanks!


There may be a better of doing this, as it is sort of clumsy:

  1. Start an enumerated list, by selecting Enumerate from the drop down menu.

  2. Add an empty ERT-box at the start of the item, move the cursor outside it and hit Enter.

  3. Press Tab. This starts a sublist, which is numbered with letters.

  4. Pressing Enter starts a new item in the sublist, to make this a new item on the main list, hit Shift + Tab, or hit Enter a second time.

As you state, there has to be something in the items of the mainlist before the sublist, but an empty ERT is sufficient.

  • It works! Thanks! Also you can just hit Enter twice to go back to the main list. – Daijiang Li Sep 17 '13 at 20:00
  • @DaijiangLi Ah, yes, that was a little bit easier. (I don't really use LyX.) Please consider accepting (and/or upvoting) my answer if it solved your problem, that marks the question as solved and awards some reputation points to both me and yourself. – Torbjørn T. Sep 17 '13 at 20:04
