So your initial question was a bit misleading, since "Level1" doesn't seem
to be a real level in this case but just a page on the same level as
"Level2". If you need just the subpages of these 3 different main pages you
can do this with "special = list" or "special = directory", but it will not
work if you expect the next levels to expand automatically.

One solution could be to use entryLevel and set it to the level of those 3
main pages and remove the pages you don't want to see in the menu.


entryLevel = 1
excludeUidList = 12,34,56

This is just the opposite of special = list, since you don't list the pages
you want to see but those you want to be removed and you will preserve the
automatic expansion of sublevels this way.
