Lists, bullets and indentation

Nebo lets you create numbered or bulleted lists with up to five levels of indentation. You can also use indents to structure your notes without creating a numbered or bulleted list.

You can add and manage lists, bullets and indents in several ways.

Creating a numbered list

Write a number followed by a period on the line where you want your list to start.

By default, the list you create will be a numbered list. You can adjust the type of list via the edit menu that displays above the list. You can create a numbered list using various characters, including Arabic numerals, Roman numerals, numerals in some non-Roman alphabets and letters.

Creating a bulleted list

Draw a dash on the line where you want your list to start, then write your list.  

By default, the list you create will be a bulleted list. You can adjust the type of list via the edit menu that displays above the list. You can create a bulleted list by drawing various characters, including ‘•’, ‘○’, ‘*’ and ‘→’.
