We have a variable paragraph that starts with a bullet. When the paragraph wraps to the subsequent lines, we need to insert a tab and/or indent so that the bullet is the furthest to the left and the left margin of the paragraph lines up nicely.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

PrintShop Mail uses the RichText component for text generation. This is identical to Wordpad.

What I did:
- Set up wordpad settings to break lines on ruler.
- Start bulleted paragraph and created faux text.
- Copy and paste the entire thing into a PSM text box.

Some controls are not available to programmers, but are supported by the control. By using a different program and then copying, you can use these features.

Another example is character spacing; if you set this up in Word, and copy and paste, it will be kept.

Kind regards,
Floris

If you put the bullet in it own text box and the text in another, you will not have any issues!

There's no need to copy/paste, just press Ctrl+Shift+L. When you first press it, it converts the current paragraph into a bulleted list. You can keep pressing it to cycle through different styles.

Are there more of these shortcut keys? And where can we find them?
