I get that typing ">! text" puts the text behind a spoiler, e.g:

text

And I get that typing " - text" buts the text in a bullet point, e.g.:

  • text

How can I get the bullet into a single spoiler?
">! - text" doesn't work:

- text1 - text2

and " - >! text" doesn't use a single spoiler e.g.:

  • text1

  • text2

It's a little cumbersome, but you can use HTML:

>! <ul>
>! <li>bullet 1</li>
>! <li>bullet 2</li>
>! </ul>

produces

  • bullet 1
  • bullet 2

As GentlePurpleRain notes, not all tags are required, but if you omit the <ul> and </ul>, the bullets will have a strange alignment:

>! <li>bullet 1
>! <li>bullet 2

produces

  • bullet 1
  • bullet 2

  • I've seen many users not bothering too much about this and just accept non-formatted lists. For example,

    >! - bullet 1  
    >! - bullet 2  
    

    (note the trailing spaces) produces

    - bullet 1
    - bullet 2

    and you can use other characters than - for the bullets as well.

      $\begingroup$ That looks like a bit of a hassle. Thanks very much! $\endgroup$ May 24 '20 at 16:32
    • $\begingroup$ Note that properly-formatted HTML is not required. A simple >! <li> List item one >! <li> List item two will suffice, and is considerably less cumbersome. $\endgroup$

    • $\begingroup$ @GentlePurpleRain that causes the bullets to coincide with the vertical line, which doesn't look too nice (see above). The closing </li> tags can indeed be omitted. $\endgroup$
