Introducing bullet points and lists: a clean way to present your text content

Add bullet points to your text or number it for a sleeker, more professional-looking design, in the PosterMyWall editor. Here’s how!

Creating a price list to showcase for your small business? Want to let your audience know what items you have on sale, or what their features are? Perhaps you’re just planning out a work calendar for next week. 

Oftentimes, it helps to list content on your design to streamline the different elements and make it easy for your audience to navigate the poster. Plus, it leaves space for you to add visuals and animation without cluttering up the design. 

Add bullet points to your text seamlessly

Now you can easily list your content in elegantly designed bullet points or numbers, directly in the PosterMyWall editor. Here’s how to do it:

Step 1: Select a text box you’d like to convert to a list. 

Step 2: On the right contextual menu, click the bullet points or numbered list icon beside ‘List’ to add a list. 

Step 3: Change the color of the bullet points list or numbers using the ‘Color’ option. To keep things consistent, you can use the color picker tool to add the color hex identical to the text content. 


Once you’ve added a list, you can click enter on your keyboard to add additional list items. Similarly, you can click the backspace key to get rid of list items. You can also toggle your list on and off by clicking the list or bullet points you’ve selected again. 


Loads of bullet point options to choose from

But wait, there’s more! You can customize your bullet points and decide on what they look like based on your design and brand aesthetic. To see the full range of bullet point designs available, simply click the down-facing arrow beside the bullet point or numbered list to reveal additional bullet point options. 


A few tips for when you add bullet points to your text

  • Make sure the text for each bullet point is short and snappy. It doesn’t help to add a bullet point next to a paragraph. 
  • Make sure to only use bullet points where appropriate — for instance, when listing down prices, items on sale, deals and packages, terms and conditions, features, services offered or your achievements in a resume. 
  • If your bullet points are in the form of short sentences, limit the number of bullet points to no more than 5 to make sure they don’t take up too much space or become hard to read. 
  • If your bullet points are in the form of one or two words (for instance, if you’re listing down products), you can increase the number of bullet points you add accordingly. 
  • Pay attention to when numbers or bullet points are more appropriate to use. As a rule of thumb, remember that numbers are only required when the order of your list matters.
  • Listed content should be similar in length. A list with single word entries as well as long sentences are harder to skim through and imbalances your list. 

And that’s all it takes to make your design look smooth, streamlined, and professional. Try adding bullet points to your next PosterMyWall design and thank us later!
