How do I indent bullets in Markdown?

Tuesday, December 26, 2023

Indenting bullet points in Markdown is essential for creating nested lists or sub-points. Markdown allows for easy indentation using spaces or tabs.

Here's how to indent bullet points:

  1. Start your list with a standard bullet using an asterisk *, a minus -, or a plus +.
  2. Indent the sub-point by either pressing the tab key or using two spaces before the bullet symbol.
-   Main point
    -   Sub-point 1
    -   Sub-point 2

This creates a nested list where 'Sub-point 1' and 'Sub-point 2' are indented under 'Main point'. This format is crucial for organizing content into a readable and structured hierarchy.
