Suppose I have an itemized list like

    paragraph 1

       - paragraph 2

    paragraph 3

where paragraph 2 is nested. If I enter this by choosing the "itemize" environment, then typing

paragraph 1 <return> <tab> paragraph 2 <return> <shift-tab> paragraph 3

LyX creates paragraph 3 as a new item. Is there a way to have paragraph 3 not be a new item? For example, if I enter paragraph 3 in the "Quote" environment, it will look like I want it to on the left (i.e. it will have the same indentation as paragraph 1 without the large dot that indicates a new item) but if it's a long paragraph it will also be indented on the right, which I don't want. In other words, I would like it to have the same indentation (both right and left) as if paragraph 3 were a new item, but without the dot preceding paragraph 3. Hope this makes sense.

Try setting paragraph 3 with the Standard layout and indent it. Hope I understood what you meant.

By "indent it", I meant "increase the depth" (by pressing the tab key, for example).

Paul's answer makes me think that my answer wasn't fully clear. So, I'll attach an example document. Looks reasonable in LyX' work area too.
