Add Bullet and Number Lists

Create a bullet or number list using the text tools inside the Paragraph widget. Lists are a good way to group content, features or products so that visitors can understand and compare information quickly.

Things to consider

Nested Bullet and Number Lists

You can create nested bullet and number lists to organise information. A nested bullet or number appears under the previous bullet or number to create a new list. To create a nested bullet or number list:

  • Click the Bullet or Number list button on the text toolbar.
  • Add a new bullet or number to your list by pressing Enter on your keyboard.
  • Press the Tab button on your keyboard. The bullet or number should be shown indented to the right.

You can have multiple nested bullet and number lists.

FAQs

My text isn't saving any changes

That means there's an issue with the encoding. To fix this issue it is recommended you delete the widget and recreate it.

If there's a lot of content, you should copy the content into a plain text editor (e.g. Notepad, not Word or Wordpad) so you can paste it back in easily.

How do I add special characters?

There isn't a way to add special characters (superscripts and other symbols) built into our editor but you can copy and paste them into the editor from an outside location.

How do I use my own fonts?

We unfortunately do not have a way to add your own fonts built into our editor's interface.
