Creating multi-level lists in Confluence WYSIWYG editor

My company is currently using Confluence Cloud with no additional plugins for internal communication and technical documentation. Being responsible for the latter, I'm going crazy with how poor the formatting features in the basic WYSIWYG editor are.

It seems to be impossible to create multi-level lists that alternate between numbers and bullets, depending on the level. When the numbering gets broken, there is no way to restart the numbering (as there is in any normal WYSIWYG editor).

Are there any workarounds? Using Wiki markup directly in the editor doesn't do the trick. We're hopefully moving to Confluence Server with a source code editor and Scroll plugins soon but I need a solution in the meantime.

As for resetting, just repeatedly click a list button until you get to the point that you want to work from.

You may have some luck with the Numbered Headings addon from Avisi:

You can alternate settings using the "Custom" numbering method, although I'm not sure if it will let you include bullets as an option. You'll have to try it out or possibly ask directly.
