This is start from:

* Up
** Foo
   - x

Notice that the plain list under Foo is indented. This is what I want next:

* Up
** Foo
   - x
** Bar

But from - x, I don't know how to "escape" the plain list, in other words start a new headline. In more detail:

1:

* Up
** Foo
- x

2: Then, C-x h C-M-\:

* Up
** Foo
   - x

3: Then M-RET:

* Up
** Foo
   - x
   -

4: Then M-RIGHT:

* Up
** Foo
   - x
   -

"Cannot outdent top level regions"

  • Not sure I understand what you want. Are you trying to turn the list item into a headline? – JeanPierre Nov 26 '19 at 6:58
  • No. In the example shown I am in a plain list that is indented and nested in a headline. I want to start a new headline. I can't. – Erwann Nov 26 '19 at 7:09

Not sure that I understand correctly, but it seems to me you need C-RET (org-insert-heading-respect-content). This should create a new heading even though you are currently inside a list.

Inside a plain list, type RET, then *, then space. It's the last step I was missing. Then indent the headline as needed with M-RIGHT.

    I wouldn't call this indent. The doc says "Demote current heading by one level." – JeanPierre Nov 26 '19 at 7:58
