I see the same behavior on 6.4 OOTB. If I style multiple lines at the same time Lists icon is disabled on the first line. If I style each line one after another List icon is disabled on all lines.

Also I see same behavior with Text Component under General Component Group (not just We.Retail component group). May be a bug.

Hi smacdonald2008smacdonald2008​,

If i try i full mode also i have similar issue.

For ex: if i open the OOTB text component dialog in full mode and type a text "sample1" and when i select the text andclick on numbered or bullet icon nothing happens.
