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.

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
