💡Feature Idea: Can we have text box formatting feature parity with Miro, please?

I miss that I can't create bulleted text (lists) like I can in Miro. This one feature alone stops me from migrating some elaborate illustrations from Miro to Mural.

Other text formatting includes:

  • Font size declaration (+/- isn't enough)
  • Text highlight
  • Copy style

Happy to chat about any of this.

    It would be great to add an option for bullets in text boxes

    Being able to see the actual font size number would be helpful

    the bullets in text book would be FAB! I currently have to add them as assets and make them sit next to the sentence - frustrating!

    I would love this as well as a grid in the background.

    That's great new @nadiar ... As you'll see from my LinkedIn profile (https://www.linkedin.com/in/coachkidd/), I work a lot with product folks, and so I'd be happy to talk about these features... and how I use them in my work.

    @Agus ... Thanks for the update, regarding bulleted lists ... Great work!

    I've just done a parity check with Miro, and unless I'm mistaken, Miro still allows me to indent my lists, allowing me to nest my bullets. Whereas in Mural I can only work with the root level.

    I've attached a screenshot of what I mean.

    It's not a show-stopper, as I can still 'fudge' nested bullet using characters, but it's not ideal.

    @CoachKidd, thank you for the feedback! Yes, the current iteration is for one level of bulleted and numbered lists. The team will keep iterating on the feature, and multiple indentations will be considered in future releases.

    If you are interested in offering feedback for our Product features, please keep an eye out on the tag "Open MURAL Research". There is one opportunity up right now, but our product managers and researchers post opportunities on a fairly regular basis.

    Thanks again, for this great question.
