I changed the list order

\renewcommand{\labelenumii}{\theenumii}

\renewcommand{\theenumii}{\theenumi.\arabic{enumii}.}

\begin{enumerate}

\setcounter{enumi}{2}

\item Third item

\end{enumerate}

But I can't change the sublist order

\begin{enumerate}

\setcounter{enumi}{2}

\item Third item

  \begin{enumerate}

  \setcounter{enumi}{3}

  \item item 3.4

  \item item 3.5

  \end{enumerate}

\end{enumerate}

Is it possible change the sublist order? I need to start the sublist with the item 3.4

  • Any MWE? Is it an article, a book or what? – Dario Jun 21 '16 at 19:08
  • You need \setcounter{enumii}{3} in your second code snippet. – Werner Jun 21 '16 at 19:09

    Using enumitem this is easy with the start=3 option – user31729 Jun 21 '16 at 19:09

You presumably want

\setcounter{enumii}{3}

to set the level 2 list, but the enumitem package gives a nicer interface to such things.

Using enumitem, the start=... option can be used. Please note that enumitem takes care of the correct value, i.e. if the item should start with 3, use start=3, not start=2, i.e. the counter will not increased again.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{enumitem}


\begin{document}
\begin{enumerate}[start=3]
\item Third item
  \begin{enumerate}[start=4,label*={\arabic*}]

  \item item 3.4

  \item item 3.5

  \end{enumerate}



\end{enumerate}

\end{document}
