Dot points in text box

The standard text box does not have a dot point option. Has anyone found a custom visual or work around?

Thanks in advance.

Appreciate this is a late response but if you did want some sort of bullet point, even if not a dot (I used a square q but you can use a dot l), you can amend the Text type within the text box to Wingdings and use 'q' which will give you the square above or 'l' (lowercase L) to get the dot and then switch back to the text style you were previously using...it gives the illusion of a bullet point.

@johnmelbourne , not very clear.

The information you have provided is not making the problem clear to me. Can you please explain with an example.


You can use unichar -https://www.biinsight.com/using-unicode-characters-in-power-bi/

 

To type in text box, you might have use alt+ the unichar number

Sorry Amit, and congratulations on your massive amount of points in the rankings. #1 by far.
I am trying to insert a text box into a page, not linked to a measure, and use dot point like in MS Word.

I can do it by say copying and pasting from word, but it does not use formatting such as indent. So the formatting with no indent is not great over multiple lines, so I wondered if I was missing something simple, like a rich text editor visual or other solution.

 

Regards

John
