Question about indented list in confluence

Hi,

I need to create a list like this:

A

*a1

*a2

*a3

B

*b1

*b2

(* means indented)

The problem is with B, it get allways indented and aligned with a3. I have tried with the wiki editor too but it always makes B indented.

This is confluence 3.5

Thank you,

Trying again as it munged formatting on my first post

A
* a1
* a2
* a3

B
* b1
* b2

Hi andrew, I tried that too (SHIFT - ENTER)

The list is within a table, I think that is causing the problem, because in plain text it works OK.

Hi Adolfo,

You're right it looks like a problem with the lists being in tables. One alternative is to use sections and columns instead of a table, e.g.

{section:border=true}
{column:width=50%}
Column One
A
* a1
* a2
* a3

B
* b1
* b2 
{column}

{column:width=50%}
Column Two
{column}
{section}

but that's going to get messy if the table is more than just a few columns.

Do you know if there is a case open for this issue?

Looks like it was logged at https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-4435 and is reported as fixed in 4.0.x with the new editor. Might be worth asking Atlassian Support for a backported fix for 3.5.x?

Hi Adolfo,

If you add a line break between a3 and B it should work, e.g.

A

* a1

* a2

* a3

B

* b1

* b2

Hope that helps,

Andrew.

How to use Confluence Cloud for stakeholder management
