# Interrupting nested lists

How to interrupt the nested lists and resume directly from the inner list?

For example:

Step 1: Define the below items

\begin{enumerate}
\item Item Level 1
\begin{enumerate}
\item Item Level 2
\end{enumerate}
\end{enumerate}


Step 2: Define the comment in the first level:

comment at level 1


Step 3: Define the second item in the second level:

     \begin{enumerate}
\item Item Level 2
\end{enumerate}


Step 4: Define the comment in the second level:

    comment at level 2


Step 5: Define another comment in the first level:

comment at level 1


Step 6: Define the second item in the first level:

\begin{enumerate}[resume]
\item Item Level 1
\end{enumerate}


Resuming the first level is achieved using this solution. How to interrupt both first & second list and resuming directly from second list second item?

The Final expected output should be something like this:

1. Item Level 1
a. Item Level 2
comment at level 1
b. Item Level 2
comment at level 2
comment at level 1
2. Item Level 1


Could you please suggest some ideas for this?

• Will possible items content be several lines long? Sep 7, 2018 at 13:07
• Possibly, yes, it contains! Sep 7, 2018 at 13:11

Here is a solution, with the series key, for the level 2 enumerate:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[showframe]{geometry}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\setlength{\parindent}{1em}

\begin{document}

\begin{enumerate}[wide=1em, leftmargin=*]
\item Item Level 1
\begin{enumerate}[wide=0pt, leftmargin=*, series=level2]
\item Item Level 2
\end{enumerate}
\end{enumerate}

Comment at level 1
\begin{enumerate}[resume*]
\item[]
\begin{enumerate}[resume*=level2, wide = 0pt]
\item Item Level 2
\end{enumerate}
\noindent Comment at level 2
\end{enumerate}

Comment at level 1
\begin{enumerate}[resume*]
\item Item Level 1
\end{enumerate}

\end{document}


• Awesome, Thanks. Would it be possible to have the level1 comments aligned with the numbers like the level2 alphabets? Sep 7, 2018 at 18:07
• es, it is: jus set \parindent to 1em (like labelindent), and make the comments for level 1 start a new paragraph. Please see the updated code. However, note that only the first line of the comment will be aligned with the level 1 label. Sep 7, 2018 at 18:48
