Hi @davekerby,

 

We currently do not support un/ordered list in the textbox. Quill (the library we use to run the editor) allowing un/ordered listst to be created is a bug. We are currently upgrading to a new version of Quill that does not have this issue. The new version should included in the official release of PBI Desktop around August.

Hi @v-qiuyu-msft,

 

Do you have an update on this? Having a bulleted list is very important and should be a standard feature of a text box.

 

Thanks,

James

I solved this by using the ASCI code for a bullet point ALT+7. See here.

Has this upgrade been applied yet? I still can't seem to find a way to add bullets in Power BI text box.

It's been years since this was posted and I still cannot add a bulleted list to Power BI. Has Quill been updated to support this? Or is there another option? This is quite the limitation for something that is so simple in other applications.
