Nested lists in rich text

Need to be able to have more than one tier of bullets for creating outlines in the rich text editor. Bonus points = allow designer to configure the bullet symbols for the entire site so editors stay in the design of the site.

    I'm working on a solution for this to post-process some simple markup into a nested list. I need some folks to help me test and validate my use cases. Anyone keen to help test can message me - Demo is here-

    @webflow since it got reviewed in 2017 is it not going to be looked upon again?

    This is the kind of thing that leads me to say that Webflow is the worst website builder around. I would never recommend it to a client. I would advise them to avoid Webflow at all costs. Missing elementary functionality and not in any way intuitive. Worst UI ever.

    "It's 2022! Let's implement this 'feature' that is available since the beginning of the internet.." Agreed! 😆 But, really... if you can't support this, give me a break. And, also agree with Alex... it is hello embarrassing.

    I'm really surprised this isn't a thing already, and hasn't been for at least 5 years. 😬

    It's pretty embarrassing having to tell a client that they can't do this on Webflow 😬

    Astounded this still hasn't been done ... 5 years later?! Its not like Webflow is cheap or anything, and this is a basic feature of even the cheapest ancient CMS tools. just wow.

    Possible work around; using "em" in lists to create the nested items


    $('rich_text ul li > em').each(function () {

    Really? Still not possible? This is suuuuuuper basic and very unfortunate it's not possible in WF.

    4 years have past. Still missinging the "increase indent" functionality that is basic to every other web editor on the market (including this comments RTE).

    ...this was posted in 2017 and it's late 2021 and we still don't have this? Why is such a basic feature still missing?
