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.

    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 () {

    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?

    +1 for me. This is pretty much a function of most WYSIWYG editor

    • Even this comments

      • editor can

        • do it

    • Why not

      • use an editor

        • like this one

          • as the Rich Text Block?

    This needs to be part of the rich text editor and also available for collaborators within rich text.
