How do I have a bulleted list that isn't indented?

Using the Bullet list, the list items are automatically indented:

  • One
  • Two
  • Three


I want the list to be flush left:

• One
• Two
• Three

I finally have a solution. Thanks to a rep from Adaptavist, I've got exactly what I want.

To get disc bullets to align left, use the Fancy Bullets macro and set the Padding to 15px (<- be sure to add "px").

Keep in mind that this setting may only work for disc bullets; you'll have to experiment with other padding amounts for other bullet shapes

Awesome, make sure to mark this as answered so we can also close this post ;).

I found one workaround that works without columns.

If I use the HTML macro thusly:

I get this:

BUT ...

If the page has layout, the right side of the text is cut off:

Is there some HTML wizardry that can be added to make sure all the text appears?

Well, that is a start at least, nice one :D.

Unfortunately there's no built in way to move those as the feature was designed to work in that way sad.  If you try to click in the "Outdented" to move the bullets to the left it will remove the bullet.

What you could do is to raise a improvement request at while we look for any other kind of work around.

I'm trying to use Milo Grika's solution to get a bulleted list that's not outdented in the "Fancy Bullet" macro, but I don't know what I'm supposed to put for "ID"--can someone explain what that field is to me? Thanks.
