Tim, I could use buttons for formatting lists with bullets or numbers. The Wiki codes are just too tedious to use one item at a time. -- Larry Hess, CPA, Albuquerque, NM - Talk to me

OK, Thanks for the feedback - I'll see what we can do. Would you expect to hit the button for each list item, or would you expect to highlight a block of text and have it add bullets to each line? You know it's as simple as starting a line with an asterisk "*" for a bulletted item or a "#" for a numbered item, right?

I would like to highlight a block of text and click the button. But, I didn't know (or forgot) about the "*" and "#." I looked at Help but didn't see them. -- Larry Hess, CPA, Albuquerque, NM - Talk to me

Having a button do that would be more complex than the standard buttons currently work. They support a prefix, a suffix, and something in the middle. If you have something highlighted, the something in the middle is replaced with what you had highlighted to begin with. The functionality you describe would be many prefixes and many middles. I fully understand what you want (at least I think I do), and it sounds logical. We can probably do it, but it's not as easy as the others we added.

The help topics are called "How to add a bulleted list to an article." and "How to add a numbered list to an article." I believe they're also listed in the FAQ file at the top of the forum listing.
