Colour of list bullets or numbered lists


When I create a list which has red text, the bullts stay black (the same in numbered lists). E.g.

  • this text in red

the bullet will stay black. Can that be changed?

There is no way to change color of the bullets with the editor directly. You could include some CSS using the html macro or the style macro that comes with the Confluence Formatting Macros to do it. Also, take care when underlining text on a web page. In the web world underlined text means it is a link and you may confuse your audience when they cannot click on it. Underlining should only be used in very intentional cases on the web.

Hi Davin,

You are right about underlining, it should be used by exception, but do you also have an idea of why sometimes the colour of the underlining changes and sometimes not, depending on what you do first, change colour or underline.



Also when underlining text: first write the text, then change the colour of word and then underline it. The underlining is black. When first underlining and then changing colour, the underlining changes colour too.
