How can I indent Checkboxes in the new Confluence Cloud editor

We use Confluence Pages for planning and executing major software deployments.

One feature we use heavily is indented sublists of Checkboxes

The old Confluence Cloud editor did this nicely.

How can we compose such lists in the new Confluence Cloud editor ??

Hi all,


This is something we're actively working on. We'll make sure to keep you posted once this ships!




OMG, Yet another "works fine, we made it better and broke basic capabilities".

Guys, this makes me want to leave Confluence. Seriously.  Its a HUGE time waster as I try to use the system, and think Google docs may be the simpler approach.
