Just a simple list with bullets


#1

Hi just need some help. I want to make a simple list of text with bullets, and no indent.
Something like this:
• Aanhoudende vermoeidheid
• Allergieën (voedingsmiddel, hooikoorts etc.)
• Bacteriele infecties
• Benauwdheid
But…
what happens is this when downscaling sitepage:
• Aanhoudende vermoeidheid
• Allergieën (voedingsmiddel,
hooikoorts etc.)
• Bacteriele infecties
• Benauwdheid

The text ‘hooikoorts’ should jump/indent a few spaces to the right, so it aligns with ‘Allergieën’.

Is there a smart trick to solve this? The ‘List brick’ is not what I mean, use the ‘insert HTML’ instead?

Thanks!

Andries

<ul>
<li>first list item</li>
<li>second list item</li>
<li>third list item</li>
<li>fourth list item</li>
<li>fifth list item</li>
</ul>

Hi, I’m just a graphic designer and I cannot understand where to write this code.

Just use a list Bric and the drop paragraph Brics into each part. You can toggle on the bullets in the list sidebar options. The list Bric in Blocs is more of a structure object, as you can create lists of images etc.

THNX, I have done it this way!
I did try to do it with the code (in html bric) but I could not edit the text (bold etc.)


#7

You could give a classname to the paragraph(s) and edit them with the classmanager (type, color, size etc).


#8

Can you change the bullet points to dashes?


#9

No need to stoop to dashes: you can insert bullets of many types using Edit–> Emoji. I found the bullet shown after searching for circle. It’s called "black circle"


One way (shown at right) is to make separate small paragraph brics for each line, and insert the bullet you like as a text item at the front of each.

Tony Now I have tried this - I’m not sure it works - are you suggesting that you can replace the list bullet with an Emoji or symbol as I can’t see a way to insert it
As for the second option ( on your post Right side) adding a bullet to the first character doesn’t stop the overflow lines from aligning with the bullet and not the actual text.


#11

Here’s an animated .gif showing how I put the bullet in. I have the bullet in my favorite list, but you’d need to do a search for one (like the “black circle” I mentioned). All I do in the animation is place my cursor where I want the bullet and then double click on the emoji – then it inserts. I agree with you that if you have bullet text long enough to wrap back this may not be the best way. The point of my post was that the emoji was superior to using a dash. I’ve also attached the .bloc project.

there is a shortcut for bullets: e.g. (german keyboard layout): alt+shift+ü. Test it on your keyboard. i am sure you find the shortcut for your layout.


#13

for non QUERTZ keyboards alt+shift+9 will also work.


#14

Thanks But isn’t this getting away from the OP request to align the text part when lines break to a new line.

Also my secondary query was changing the default list character to something other than the bullet.

BTW option 8 always adds a bullet character on a Mac.

A trick to make bullets is to use a background image for the bullet (left-aligned), and then use padding to move the text to the right of the bullet.
