Hello,

If a bulleted line of text is longer than a single line, how do I get the beginning of the second line of text to line up with the text in the first line (after the • >>)?  I do not want it to line up with the bullet, but rather with the text.

If anyone can help, I would be very appreciative.

Which Affinity application are you using?

Hi RenWaller,
I'm assuming you are using Publisher. Is that correct? With the text frame selected go to menu View ▸ Show Text Ruler, then drag the left indent mark. Left Indent it's what's control the space (make sure the first line indent remains set to zero) in the Paragraph panel, Spacing section.

When you activate the ruler it is displayed above the text frame - you should be able to create a new bullet style (probably Bullet 4) to enable you to apply it regularly.

These work fine if you are using the Frame Text Tool. If you are using the Artistic Text Tool the View/Show Text Ruler isn't an option, but you can get the same result using the Paragraph Panel/Spacing/top left 2 boxes. Play around with them - hover over the numbers & use the mouse scroll wheel to move the text.

Not sure the Artistic Text tool is the most adequate for this. For text blocks the Frame Text tool gives far more control. The Artistic Text Tool is mostly intended for artistic uses as the name implies: single words or a sentence you may want to apply to a path or for text effects.
