I am trying to get inline enumeration in Lyx. It's pretty handy for things like (i) this, (ii) inline, (iii) list.

In plain Latex I use


and later simply

    \item bla
    \item bla

The same doesn't work in Lyx and when I try, I get "Too deeply nested" error and the solution here doesn't work in Lyx as there are many other Lyx-made environments in the document already.

How can I get inline lists in Lyx?

  • Maybe Lix uses paralist?

    Can you post a MWE .lyx file where you get the "Too deeply nested" error?

    What you describe works just fine in LyX (I tried), so you must be doing something more than that. I do get that error if I have an inline list in the fourth level of a nested enumerated list though, is that what you're trying as well? A minimal example as requested would be useful.

  • I had already a list >4 levels deep, but it was working fine I don't know how (I couldn't reproduce it later). Using the enumitem broke it somehow. Now I have used Mark's solution and everything works also with inline enumeration. Must make a rule of not trying hard on Friday evenings...
