Max Bullet Depth

It there a way to have more than 6 levels of bullets or numbered lists?

When creating a bullet list (in a BLANK page template) I can only have 6 levels of indentation. (see screenshot)

Oddly, in THIS box, I can have more than 6 levels

  • 1
    • 2
      • 3
        • 4
          • 5
            • 6
              • 7
                • 8
                  • 9
                    • 10
                      • 11
                        • 12

So can the regular BLANK page template be upgraded to have more than 6 levels?

I've found a reasonable work around.

Make a bulleted list of two levels, eg

  • L1
    • L2

Copy that two-line list, and paste it at the place you cant indent further from, and edit the text.   With that I can go to any depth bulleted list, no more limited to that artificial 6-deep limitation.

I don't see any solutions on that link, I only saw some work-arounds to indenting more than 1 indent at a time.

I'd like to push for this bullet-list-depth limitation to be removed from the wysiwyg editor.  I cant imagine what the reason is for limiting it to a depth of 6.
