Auto-Nav: making it display multiple levels, as I specify

Permalink
I'm not sure what settings I should use to get my main navigation Auto-Nav to display/behave how I want it to. Here's what I've got. Start with an example Site Map.

English
- for friends
--- about us
----- history
----- staff
------- Alice
------- Bob
--- news
- for project partners
--- meetings
--- forms
--- official reports
français
- Pour les amis
--- A propos de nous
----- l'histoire
----- personnel
------- Alice
------- Bob
--- presse
- Pour les partenaires du projet
--- réunions
--- formulaires
--- Rapports officiels

OK. So if you're on the English side Home page, the Main Menu should show:
<ul>
  <li> for friends
    <ul>
      <li> about us      </li>
      <li> news</li>
    </ul>
  </li>
  <li> for project partners
    <ul>
      <li> meetings</li>
      <li> forms</li>
      <li> official reports</li>
    </ul>
  </li>
</ul>


...But reveal appropriate levels of the site as the visitor drills down. Ultimately, if the visitor is on the Staff page, everything up to Staff should be expanded, plus 1 child level, thus:

<ul>
  <li> for friends
    <ul>
      <li> about us
        <ul>
          <li> history</li>
          <li> staff
            <ul>
              <li> Alice</li>
              <li> Bob</li>
            </ul>
          </li>
        </ul>
      </li>
      <li> news</li>


Tell me this can happen, and I just need some fancy footwork.

Edit your autonav block,
- display pages: top level
- sub pages to display: display all
- sub page levels: display all

That wasn't it, but I was able to get close--

Display Pages: Beneath a particular page
Sub Pages to Display: Relevant sub pages.
Sub-Page Levels: Display sub pages to current +1

The only thing this misses is that I'd like:

Display Pages: First two levels beneath a particular page

So, now, I'm getting "for friends" and "for project partners" everywhere. What I'd like is "for friends" and its first-level descendants and "for project partners" and its first-level descendents, everywhere. But what I've just got will do for now...

Thanks for taking the time. Still seeking an answer more specific to this need.
