I can't figure out how to do it.

There's no built-in feature for bullets or numbers yet (strange, because it's one of the oldest HTML text formats), but you could try installing and using this plugin: https://adobe.com/go/xd_plugins_discover_plugin?pluginId=02b738ca

It's not very well reviewed (it lacks a lot of crucial settings, like indent measure, multiple types of bullets, etc.) But at least it types the characters for you...

Hi AntDX316,

 

We regret the inconvenience caused. Currently there is no in-built feature in Adobe XD to add bullet points for area text.  There is already a feature request for the same: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/16073923-text-bull...  I suggest upvoting this feature request to stay tuned to the latest announcements around it.

Meanwhile, you can try the following workaround:

Copy pasting the text along with bullet points from MS Word to XD.

We will try our best to get this feature delivered in future releases of XD.

We cannot even use Alt+7 within XD but we can use it anywhere else.  Copying and pasting makes it the best workaround.

On a Windows 10 PC "Windows Key + ." brings up the new emoji inserter window.  You can use it to also insert symbols as well, as seen below with the bullet symbol highlighted:

For many standard fonts such as Arial, Times New Roman, etc..., you can use the keyboard shortcut of  "Alt + 0149" to insert a bullet.

I just udated XD to the most recent version on July 1 2020, and if they added it, it is not apparent. So I would say no.

I was baffled to see it's not a part the adobe UX software. Seems so essential when laying out text.

I wonder if it complicates page layout/flow too much to incorporate into Visual UX Tools.

 

I checked out Figma and was surprised to see that they also don't have the ability to add an ordered list or numbered list. Oddly, that made me feel a bit better.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll give it a go and if it gets the basics of bulleted lists done I'm good.
(You weren't kidding about the reviews!?)

I understand a workaround is required to get it to work.

I'm baffled by the

  • Very
  • Long
  • Delay of
  • Bullet lists!

at Adobe XD! The prototyping capabilities are launching ahead while basic text editing (like hanging-indent bullet lists and other HTML basics) are lagging WAY behind.

There are 100s of designers poised to adopt XD at my company alone, but we're not going to leap until there's basic text editing capabilities.

¿Que Pasa?

Agree! Are they actually kidding?!

 

Ps. Ironic that this basic commenting dialog box has:

That's pretty funny/sad.  Very good point. It'd be like Photoshop not having an eyedropper.
