The symbols in different itemise levels can be shown with \symbol[1], \symbol[2] etc. but since these numbered symbols can be redefined it is better to use the named symbol to access the star with \symbol[star].

The following example shows a few of the predefined symbols.


\NC \bf Command                 \NC \bf Symbol           \NC\NR
\NC \type{\symbol[1]}           \NC \symbol[1]           \NC\NR
\NC \type{\symbol[2]}           \NC \symbol[2]           \NC\NR
\NC \type{\symbol[3]}           \NC \symbol[3]           \NC\NR
\NC \type{\symbol[4]}           \NC \symbol[4]           \NC\NR
\NC \type{\symbol[5]}           \NC \symbol[5]           \NC\NR
\NC \type{\symbol[6]}           \NC \symbol[6]           \NC\NR
\NC \type{\symbol[7]}           \NC \symbol[7]           \NC\NR
\NC \type{\symbol[8]}           \NC \symbol[8]           \NC\NR
\NC \type{\symbol[bullet]}      \NC \symbol[bullet]      \NC\NR
\NC \type{\symbol[dash]}        \NC \symbol[dash]        \NC\NR
\NC \type{\symbol[star]}        \NC \symbol[star]        \NC\NR
\NC \type{\symbol[triangle]}    \NC \symbol[triangle]    \NC\NR
\NC \type{\symbol[circle]}      \NC \symbol[circle]      \NC\NR
\NC \type{\symbol[square]}      \NC \symbol[square]      \NC\NR
\NC \type{\symbol[diamond]}     \NC \symbol[diamond]     \NC\NR
\NC \type{\symbol[smallcircle]} \NC \symbol[smallcircle] \NC\NR
\NC \type{\symbol[medcircle]}   \NC \symbol[medcircle]   \NC\NR
\NC \type{\symbol[bigcircle]}   \NC \symbol[bigcircle]   \NC\NR
