# [Tex/LaTex] Possible to create bullets for \subitems using \itemize without a nested list

itemizelists

I have made a list of questions and subquestions using nested \itemize commands, like this:

\documentclass[11pt]{report}
\usepackage[british]{babel}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}

\begin{itemize}
\item{First item}
\begin{itemize}
\item{First subitem}
\item{Second subitem}
\item{Third subitem}
\end{itemize}
\item{Second item}
\item{Third item}
\end{itemize}

\end{document}


Now this works fine for me, but I am just wondering, could you also create bullets when using \subitem instead of a nested list, like below? I do get an indentation at my subquestions, but no bullets.

\begin{itemize}
\item{First item}
\subitem{First subitem}
\subitem{Second subitem}
\subitem{Third subitem}
\item{Second item}
\item{Third item}
\end{itemize}


An alternative to this approach, which facilitates the production of nested lists is the outlines package. To produce a bulleted list with three levels it is as simple as

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{outlines}
\begin{document}
\begin{outline}
\1 Top level item
\2 Sub item
\3 sub sub item
\end{outline}
\end{document}


To make a numbered list (as opposed to a bulleted list) one can simply pass the enumerate option to this package

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{outlines}
\begin{document}
\begin{outline}[enumerate]
\1 Top level item
\2 Sub item
\3 sub sub item
\end{outline}
\end{document}
