Today I have been working on a document that required nested bullit lists. Basically a numbered list 1 - 6 with bullit points under each numbered entry. eg: 1) xxxxx . xxxxxxxx . xxxxxxxx 2) etc The problem was that I couldn't make the top level "numbered" lists sequece automatically. As soon as the bullit point lists where added the numbered list started again at 1. I worked around it by defining a new starting number for each numbered bullit ... but a bit of a faff. Does anybody know of a way to make the numbered list sequence automatically?? I suspect i'm being a bit dim. Thanks.
