I notice toolbar buttons for ordered and bulleted lists, but do not see any way to enable them. Are these intended for text in the nodes, notes, or free-floating text on the map ?

I fairly often want to document a node with a set of bulleted points, points that are really only about the node itself (in other words, points that are not related to a relationship with another node).

Bulleted lists inside the node would be nice (allowing for an annotated node, if you will, with the bulleted notes visible (i.e., a "big" node stretched to include the bulleted text)). I could envision a node having a title in addition to bulleted text.

Bullets inside of the notes panel would also be nice.

Either approach would work for what I need.

For now, I will live with plain text notes, I guess.

Hi Nathan,

On the toolbar, you'll see a text tool indicated with the 'T' icon. If you select that tool, and then click on your map, you'll get a text box, with that text box active the bullet buttons will become enabled and you will be able to insert a bulleted list. Once you've created your list change your tool back to the the arrow tool, and drag the text box onto a node, now you'll have a node with a bulleted list. The styled text functions don't work on node labels, only on text objects. With the combination of label and the text object you should be able to achieve what you're envisioning.
