I cannot figure out how to use the list function. In 1.9x it was simple. Press tab bullets move right. Press shift tab, bullets move left. Indent / unindent. These no longer work. Manipulating the left margin anchors from the ruler seem to help some, but functionally this is ridiculously cumbersome.

Under Format menu / Paragraph, there is lots of stuff about tab stops, tabs and indents, increasing and decreasing, but those don't seem to work. For instance, I change the .17 to .25 but it just changes back the next time I look.

I searched the interactive tutorial and failed to find anything about how to use bullet lists.

So, is it not working yet, or is there something somewhere that I can read to explain how they work now?

It is not yet working correctly. There are currently several known bugs affecting how lists should work.

Is this also true of the list numbering? I have lists that keep renumbering incorrectly (eg I have A, B, with some bullets underneath and then It goes to A again for no apparent reason and I can't get it back)

I just fixed it by selecting all and going to Format, Lists and re-checking the ABC list. Don't know why it got screwed up in the first place though.

It seems, however to change back every time I have a new bullet and press return. It reverts to a new list (ie, it changes to A again)

Yes, that has also been filed as part of this ticket. Thanks!

'Hokay. Glad it's not just me. Being unable to indent a list was killing me and this thread did not turn up at first.
