Had to come back to XD to do a web design again this week. I have not had to use the app for quite a while so assumed the multiple updates in that time would have finally added a BASIC feature like bullets/lists. Utterly gobsmacked that there still is no way to do this. The workaround to get a list with bullets and indented text is a messy embarrassment (try creating a long thread of text with heads, body copy and several lists in it)
Adobe, why is this still not implemented? This has been a feature request for YEARS now.

I agree we want projectiles, numbering, and the capacity to begin another number. Essential projectile highlights in basic. https://ufa356s.com/baccarat/
How is this is not a thing?

IT'S BEEN FIVE YEARS AND THE MOST BASIC OF FUNCTIONS IS STILL NOT PRIORITIZED BY ADOBE XD PRODUCT OWNERS *crying emoji* and here I thought the company I work for has bad POs. Baffled.

Over 4 years and they can't implement bullet points 😂😂

Please add this :)

Please add this! It really sucks that you can't do this in XD and it's a problem almost every time I use the app.
This is a MUST.
It is mind boggling. This is one of the most basic and most used elements in digital and print work. How it got left out from the jump is beyond me. What is wrong with you people? This can't be that hard considering all the other features. Just says how little you care.
I heard on a call from a designer that even Adobe designers are surprised this has not been fixed and the reason is because the XD framework does not support it. Perhaps there is a way to just convert a paragraph of text into individual blocks of text and give them bullets while hiding the paragraph of text. Either way, Adobe needs to figure this out, it's "embarrassing".
I've been using XD since August 2020 and I'm constantly amazed at the basic features that it doesn't have!
For those stumbling on this page, you can download a bullet or list plugin from the Adobe Plugins. It's not brilliant – native support would be much better – but this can provide you with a workaround.
Honestly Adobe this is getting ridiculous, are you doing it on purpose? This is only one of the many missing features for text editing. Now I'm really considering moving to Figma...

please put the bullet points
Linken Zaney commented
Bullets and numbered lists are fundamental;
this should be really be added as a feature, along with text ident.
For anyone requiring a workaround today,
however, the following doesn't take too much time to set up and populate:
1. Isolate a sample line of text in a text frame, and set the text frame type of "Auto Height".
2. Create a text frame (or a graphic) for the a bullet in position to the left of the line of text.
3. Select both elements and create a component.
4. Duplicate the new component and offset vertically, one or more times.
5. Select the set of components and group.
6. Set the group to a vertical stack (with even spacing).
You can then drag-copy additional items within the stack to extend the list.
When a list item is longer or shorter, the auto height frame will adjust and the stack will automatically re-space all items.
Good grief, are we still waiting on this? Maybe press pause on fancy financial app chart animations (how many people are doing financial apps?) and add lists. It can not be be that difficult?

For what reason would bringing in recordings and outer connections be created prior to adding the capacity to add records? XD is poop contrasted with Sketch or Figma. Nothing in it fills in as it ought to. You can't make list things appropriately without some kind of insane module. https://manifoldmining.com/pages/bulk-orders
Not as important as 3D transforms and angular gradients apparently...
Please add bullet points and lists asap - they are really necessary!
