Ability to Change Line Spacing for Bulleted and Numbered Lists

Trying to add a bulleted or numbered list I run into multiple problems. First, as users, WE should be able to control the spacing, not you, so there is/isn't a space between a heading and the list points or individual list points. Second, I cannot indent a list without it giving me a blank first item that is not indented.

Hi @JeanS27632 Thank you for reaching with this feedback! These are all great ideas that we are tracking in our system on your behalf. At this time spacing for bulleted and numbered lists do remain at a default 1.2 spacing. Copying and pasting bullet character from another source or use an alt code (alt+7) for your bullet points can help with changing this line spacing. The same can be said about indentation for paragraphs. If you copy text that includes a tab from an external source (like Microsoft Word), the editor will convert the tab to non-breaking spaces and save. You can also continue adding dashes and change their font color to match the background color. As for inserting a word text block, are what kind of block are you looking to add? What steps would you expect to take to add one into your email? What about the blocks we currently provide does not meet your need for this?

It's needed and really just logical.

For my email text I always use line spacing 1.5. But when I add a bulleted or numbered list, the line spacing for the lists is set to 1.0 and I cannot change it. This makes my email look terrible with two different line spacings in a single email. We need the ability to set the line spacing for lists.

Uhm... What the actual...? SMH

 

This has to be one of the most simple things in the world. Yep, all other online editors I use have the ability to create line spacing and soft returns within a list. Hoping this gets added immediately given that our options of competitors are pretty vast.

 

🤨 Even this editor to craft this comment allows for soft returns. 🤦‍♂️

Is there any update to enable spacing other than the default in a bullet list. I want to be able to adjust the line height of the test within the bullet as well as space between each bullet row. Shocking that this post started in 2019 and is still an issue in 2022?!
