      <div class="">Thanks for the suggestions, but unfortunately they
        do not address my issue. I want the secondary enumeration to
        start on the first line of the primary enumeration. It works in
        LaTex.</div>
      <div class=""><br class="">
      </div>
      I tried the tab button first. The problem is that LyX does not
      like empty lines. I can use a hard space for the first item, but
      then I get an empty line of output that I do not want. If I erase
      the hard space in LyX and then preview, I get what I want, but as
      soon as I move the cursor to I new paragraph, LyX replaces the
      empty line with \item a .<br class="">
    </blockquote><p class="">OK, I see the problem. Two solutions:</p>
    <ol class="">
      <li class="">The simplest is to add an empty ERT box to the first item.
        This will prevent LyX from collapsing the empty element and adds
        nothing to the output.</li>
      <li class="">Local Layout:<br class="">
        <blockquote class="">Format 66<br class="">
          Style Enumerate<br class="">
          KeepEmpty 1<br class="">
          End</blockquote>
      </li>
    </ol><p class="">The "KeepEmpty" layout tag instructs LyX not to delete empty
      lines.</p><p class="">Riki</p><p class=""><br class="">

</div></blockquote></div>(1), the empty ERT box, is easy and does exactly what I wanted.<div class="">Thanks,</div><div class="">Hal</div></div></div></blockquote></div><br class=""></body></html>
