# Problems with lists¶

If you use lists, make sure there is an empty line before and after the list. If you use lists with sublevels, make sure there is an empty line between the levels and the sublevel items are left-aligned with the parent item text.

The same applies for bullet lists and enumerated lists.

## Correct syntax¶

### Example 1: Bullet list¶

this is some text

*  this is a list item
*  another item

more text


How it looks:

this is some text

• this is a list item
• another item

more text

### Example 2: List with sublist¶

this is some text

*  this is a list item

*  this is a sublevel list item
*  another item

this is more text


How it looks:

this is some text

• this is a list item
• this is a sublevel list item
• another item

this is more text

#### Wrong syntax¶

this is some text
*  this is a list item
*  another item
more text


How it looks:

this is some text * this is a list item * another item more text
