How do I make a sub bullet in latex?

Postby latexhelp2345 » Sat Jan 03, 2015 2:38 am

I am using \textbullet to make bullet points. What should I use to make a different style of bullet indented underneath it.

Thanks!

Have you tried using the itemize envirnoment inside another itemize envirnoment? It is as simple as that. Here is the code to work on:
  1. \documentclass{article}
  2.  
  3. \begin{document}
  4. Some text goes here.
  5.  
  6. \begin{itemize}
  7. \item This is top level item with a certain bullet.
  8.  
  9. \begin{itemize}
  10. \item Line with a 'sub bullet'.
  11. \item Another line with a 'sub bullet'.
  12. \end{itemize}
  13.  
  14. \item Back to main bullet list.
  15.  
  16. \end{itemize}
  17. \end{document}


If you want to change the 'bullet', take a look at enumitem package. It provides ample customisation options.
