Lists cannot be nested two or more layers than parent

Testing version: Version 1.0 (1648)

What were you doing: Indenting a bulleted list two levels deeper than the parent

What feature did you use: Indentation

What happened: Nothing.

What did you expect to happen: The bulleted list to move one level deeper

Hi all, unsure if this is intentional. But I am no longer able to nest bullet points arbitrarily. Bullet points must be exactly one level away from parent.

This creates some odd-looking text if I choose to delete a parent, and leave some grandchildren bullet points lying around.

Hi! Unfortunately, this how common mark works when comes to list levels. I can understand this might feel restricting for some, but make a lot of sense if you consider markdown a format that at some point will be converted to HTML or some other format.

No worries. I figured that’d be the case.

I do love the indented code blocks CommonMark enables so losing list level freedom is a price I’m willing to pay :slightly_smiling_face:
