I am unable to indent a bulleted/numbered list. Here is my screen shot below, I want my numbers to be under the Report Manager section, but they are always pushed to the far left.
I am also VERY UNIMPRESSED that Atlassian has failed to implement such a basic document feature as indenting a bullet list. This was a solved problem in the 1990s. I looked at issues filed on this in the Atlassian Jira and they are market LOW PRIORITY. This issue is HIGH PRIORITY. Bullet lists are LESS THAN USELESS as they are currently implemented. Get it together Atlassian.
I found a workaround to this. After entering either the number or hyphen then space, confluence automatically converts it to a number or a bullet, and therefore will remove the indention. When this happens press ctrl + z or the shortcut for undo. This will undo the auto number or auto bullet.
But same sentiment, I am also very UNIMPRESSED. This is a pretty basic feature to add.
Also if you have an indented list, then you insert a file. The list starts back at the far left. That is surely a defect. One that would be corrected by being able to indent without a parent (leftmost) bullet.
The insert itself could be corrected to honour the current indentation, so the next line starts in the right place, either fix would do me.
I'm not a designer by any means, but wouldn't it look better if you moved the "report manager" heading over to the left instead? Then all three sections would be in line.
If you want to edit the bullet settings you'll need to use the content formatting for confluence add-on from adaptavist. They have a "fancy bullets" macro that will let you do this. Unfortunately it's only available for server. Not sure if you're using cloud or server though.
I am trying to do the same thing. What I came up with to do the same thing is where I want the indented bullets is to use a Section macro. Then in the Section macro put a blank Column macro of the desired width. I added one more Column macros of default width and added my bulletized list.
This would also work well to add a multiple column bullet list of however many columns you desire.
I started with a two column (wide narrow) default section then embedded the Section and Column macros.
I realized that this is because the system won't let me intent what it sees as the first bullet. Of course it's not the first bullet but there's a graphic in between, so they are broken up.
This is forcing the most simplistic formatting. Don't assume you know better than me about how my document should look. Just let me put stuff where I want it, and I'll worry about how it looks.
I'm coming up against this issue as well and it is very difficult to create a well-formatted page without the ability to indent bullets and other objects. This happens even when creating a page from scratch (no copy/paste issues). It seems more like a bug fix than a feature request. Atlassian, can we get a response on this request?
I'm really confused why the regression occured in the first place. The old editor did this very well. I'm hoping it wasn't a decision, and was just an oversight.
Atlassian, if you could fix this please, this is a significant issue for those of us who want to use Atlassian to build out a knowledge base or help center for our customers.
