Using a List element

The method is based on stacking multiple List elements, so some of them can be indented.
  • Add new List element, and add list content:

  • Duplicate the List element and place it below the first one
  • In the second List element, go to Appearance then find Indent, to adjust

  • With the second List element, you could change the bullets to Circles, to distinguish the indent level further:

  • To continue with the top level of bullets, duplicate the first List element again and position it below the second List

Using a Text element

For indented lists in a Text element, there’s a different workaround and you only need one Text element.
  • First, add your Text element and list content (with manual bullets)

  • Use the markdown syntax \s as a non-breaking space, at the beginning of the lines you want to indent (you can use multiples of the syntax for more space)

  • You can’t switch to circles for bullets in this version, but you can actually add any character you want as the bullet:

That’s it, two simple ways to add indented lists easily in Carrd.
