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.

Inversly, how to indent the bullet list more to the right?

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.
