I'm trying to achieve this type of automatic plain list formatting in org mode using the
A. I want top level things to be like this 1. And then to be this a. and to be more notes like this level * and then these bullets - and then bullets like this + and finally these bullets
so in my .emacs file I put
(setq org-list-demote-modify-bullet '(("A." . "1.") ("1." . "a.") ("a." . "*") ("*" . "-") ("-" . "+")))
but my automatic formatting ends up being something like this
A. This is what I actually get 1. and then this level a. and then this level 1. THIS IS WHERE THINGS GO WRONG a. and continue on the path 1. of total utter wrongness
what am I doing wrong? How can I correct this?
