there. I am trying to build a list like this in LyX, but I CANNOT. I need to write something after 1.
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:
Start an enumerated list, by selecting Enumerate from the drop down menu.
Add an empty ERT-box at the start of the item, move the cursor outside it and hit Enter.
Press Tab. This starts a sublist, which is numbered with letters.
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.
