The ability to bullet text within the text editor
Lisa Aufox commented
This is a basic text feature in every text editing program in existence. Trying to manually add bullet points completely throws off indentation alignment.
Bullet points and numbered lists should both be a given, come on now. I'm going to have to start over in a different portfolio builder now.
• Proper text bullets would be great ta have
__• Instead of trying to go around it, and color the line with the background color

Come on, really? We, your customers, are having to petition you for bullet points in 2020?

*This is also an accessibility issue which is unacceptable.*
Manually adding bullet points to text might provide a visual cue (albeit with terrible looking, unprofessional formatting) that the content is a list, but it does not provide that same affordance to the visually impaired or those using screen readers. To avoid that, you could write everything out in paragraph form, however that creates another accessibility issue.
Accessibility also requires that content be presented simply to accommodate those with cognitive disabilities. A key component to good web writing (clear and concise) has long been to use bullets and lists to break down key concepts in a way that's easy to digest and understand. But if you can't use bullets, your content becomes more complex.
Using Adobe Portfolio means the designer has to choose between two inaccessible options: use unprofessional-looking and inaccessible bullets, or write the content in sentences, adding to the complexity of the language and creating accessibility issues for those with cognitive dysfunction.
Adobe Portfolio needs to accommodate both ordered and unordered lists for this reason, in addition to the need to create a portfolio that showcases a designer professionally.

Bullets are very important when you want to highlight some key points in your project. It helps a user read points. Please provide this functionality soon. It is really required. Otherwise will have to move to other platform
Working on my portfolio now... I think this (the ability to created bulleted lists) is a key feature that would help a lot of us (especially because people seem to skim websites very often).
If this is created, is there a way the bullets (or numbers) could be located outside the text box (or the text could have an indent or something) so that the beginning of lines align?
-- this would look
__better and is much
__easier to read (in
(ignore the underscores, this comment doesn't let me start a line with spaces!)
-- this one looks
odd and is more
difficult to read
I was able to copy and paste the bullets from a separate document for my website, but it looks like the second example up there. ^
Thank you in advance for considering this!
please add the option of adding bullet points and numbering to text. It would help users of Portfolio to become Feature Snippets in google.

Please add bullet points and numbers (with multiple levels for indenting)!!!
There's no way to make a professional-looking list. Bonkers.

Definitely need this basic formatting tool.
When can we expect it @Adobe?
Gmail, Word or any other text-based software has this. All we need is two buttons side by side when a text is selected, so we can list the items on a website. Because when we use the manual dash ("-") to list items, it responses awfully bad on mobile. All the broken lines start from all the way left side, right underneath the dash, instead of being aligned to the first letter after the dash on the line above.
Also, instead of using an only dash and a large point, Adobe should also include some other cool shapes for ordered or unordered lists.
Please add aligned text bullets (unordered and ordered lists) because otherwise, on mobile, the lists become very hard to read.
- very long line looks okay on desktop
- very long
line is very hard
to read on
- like these
