How can we improve Checkvist?

An option for "local number only", when using "list style" = "Numbers"

For deeply nested lists, the number becomes unbearably long:
"1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.2.4.7. Football"

    There is an option to switch on list numbering in a branch, using
    1 smart syntax at the beginning of the parent list item
    I think this is what you seek?

        Instead of displaying this:

        1
        2
        2.1
        2.1.1
        2.1.2
        2.2
        3

        display this:

        1
        2
        1
        1
        2
        2
        3

        Hello Dave,

        It took time for me to get what you're asking for, sorry.
        Do I understand correctly, that this second option would show numbering only for items which don't have children?

        But how would it work if I have a tree structure like:

        A
        B
        - B1
        - B2
        - - B21
        C

        If I enable "local mode numbering", which items should have which numbers?

        Thanks,

        No. What I want is a second option for list style Numbers

        List style = "Numbers 1.1.1"
        Same as current behavior
        Example prefix: 3.3.6

        List style = "Numbers 1"
        Display only the local index
        Example prefix: 6
