Medium supports simple bulleted and numbered lists in posts.

  • To begin a bulleted list on Medium, go to a new line > type * (asterisk) > press space. 
  1. To begin a numbered list, go to a new line > type 1. (numeral one, period) > press space.

For either type, press enter at the end of a line to and begin another item. Press enter again to escape list formatting. 

Numbered lists can not be continued after a section break. We do not currently support beginning on any other number than 1.
