Long version


Creating organized lists in Markdown can enhance the readability of your document. Sublists further improve this organization by allowing hierarchical structuring.

Step-By-Step Guide

  1. Create the main list item: Start your list as usual with hyphens (-) or asterisks (*).
  2. Indent Sublist: For a sublist, indent the line (two spaces recommended) followed by a hyphen or asterisk.


Indentation determines the level of the list item, allowing multiple sub-levels.


Sublists in Markdown are simple to create and can significantly enhance the structure and clarity of your documents. Remember to consistently use indentation to manage the hierarchy of list items.
