Bullet list type in Confluence


It's probably a basic question, but I don't know how can set the list style when I edit a document on Confluence. By default, Confluence set circles to type list, but I want to make a question: How I can set squares and not circles in bullet type list?

Thanks in advance!

I think there's no shortcut for that. Using autoformatting:

  1. Create a linefeed.
  2. Press [-] (Minus) and [Space].

Thanks! This works!

But would be ideal if Confluence let you choose bullet type list... :(

Hello Daniel,

you could use the "Confluence Source Editor" plugin to edit the storage format of the page and add styling to your list.
It's not really a nice way, but it works.


... or use a the Adaptavist Style Macro:

ul {
  list-style-type: square !important;
