Increase/decrease indent not working for bullets

I recently upgraded to ES4 so I would be able to created bulleted lists in forms.  However it seems that the increase/decrease indent doesn't work.  Is this a known problem?  Is there a work around?

Hi,

I don't see a problem with the bulleted lists.

Here's the source of a text field where I uses this for the default value and caption.


<field name="Textfeld1" y="53.975mm" x="15.875mm" w="123.825mm" h="47.625mm">


            <ui>


               <textEdit>


                  <border>


                     <edge stroke="lowered"/>


                  </border>


                  <margin/>


               </textEdit>


            </ui>


            <font typeface="Arial"/>


            <margin topInset="1mm" bottomInset="1mm" leftInset="1mm" rightInset="1mm"/>


            <para vAlign="middle" widows="2" orphans="2"/>


            <caption reserve="46.1964mm">


               <para vAlign="middle"/>


               <value>

Thanks for the above.  I am not a pro at scripting so I will need to digest.  I did however capture an image of the issue that I am having and now it is twofold so was wondering if you had any thoughts.  Again using LiveCycle Designer ES 4. Using the bullet feature under the paragraph tab automatically indents.  I want the bullets or numbered list to align with the end of the black line but when you insert a bullet it automatically indents (this is in a text box).  I can't figure out any way to eliminate this.  Secondly, I am not undestanding why the alignment on the bulleted list is all wanky.  Can't Adobe understand I just want everything to line up nicely?

Has anyone found a solution to this? I've come across the same issue. I would like my bullet or numbered list to start at the left margin and not indent in my document.

The solution I found was that you can't use the justified paragraph but do left align and they started lining up perfectly.

Thanks dcc5k.

I'm actually trying to find a way to left-align bullets to the rest of the content in a flowed layout instead of indenting. See image below. The red arrows show where I want to move the idented bullets and text. Any suggestions?

I just moved my text box over to align with my paragraph. You would think that making indent an option would be an easy programming fix but apparently not.
