How can I make a multiple level bulleted list in Confluence?

I'm trying to use a multiple level bulleted list, but I cannot find the way to do this.

In older Confluence versions you could use this wiki syntax

* First bullet level
** Second bullet level

which rendered a bullet for the first level and a different bullet icon also indented for the second level.

 

In recent confluence versions, if you type that syntax, you get this;

  • First bullet level

** Second bullet level

 

The same problem happens with older mixed levels, like ## or #*, etc.

I can't believe that this feature is not available any longer in Confluence editor. Is it really?

Hi Miguel,

use the indent button on the editor header.

Dear Thomas,

 

indenting a bullet doesn't change its style as it worked in previous versions or numbered lists where it changes from 1,2,3 to a,b,c and so on. It just indents it.

 

Thanks

As explained in https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/confluence-wiki-markup-251003035.html#ConfluenceWikiMarkup-Lists
I confirm that subsequent levels in lists doesn't work anymore...

Indent button is just a visual workaround but doesn't fix the issue.. Any other way to force a subsequent level ?

(I use Confluence 5.9.2)
