How do you get out of bulleted-list mode?


I can find no way to return to normal paragraph text after a bulleted list. This despite the fact that pressing Return after the last line isn't producing a new bulleted line. No matter how many blank lines I add, pressing the bulleted-list button in the toolbar to deactivate it always removes the last bullet... which I want to keep.

Here's a screen grab.

Hi @Gavin Stokes . I can't see the issue you are seeing both cloud and server confluence platforms. Perhaps its particular version you have. 

I viewed the video. I saw you are able to create a new line without a bullet point but it seems indented along with the other bullet points. See if you can use the outdent button.

Thanks for the reply. I don't know what was going on there. Eventually I tried Ctrl-Return to insert a hard return, and this produced another bulleted line. After that, all returns produced bulleted lines as expected, and I was able to cancel them with the toolbar control.

The editor behavior seems a little flaky. Later, I typed a hyphen and it applied strikethrough to the entire paragraph. Undo reversed that, and the next hyphen didn't do it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Thanks for the update. Glad to hear that things return to normal but definitely not part of the design. 

Cloud platform here. Editor is quite poor.

CTRL-return in 'permanent bulleted mode' does nothing. Command-return "saves" the document, idiotically. No escape from "bullet time". Worst editor I have used.

I was able to exit bullet-list mode by hitting (unmodified) Enter twice at the end of a bullet-list.
