What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

Let's say I write up a bunch of rows and decide I want to make it a list. So I have this:

Item 1
Another Item
Something Else

When I mark all these three lines and click the List-button (doesn't matter which one), the Editor takes all three rows and makes one list-item out of them, ignoring the line-breaks.

The output will simply be:

- Item 1 Another Item Something Else

It would be far more useful, If it would create one list-item for each line.

Please! Especially with all the new users who post lists in code blocks or quotes. This would make editing so much easier! – Linuxios Mar 6 '13 at 0:52
@RichardJ.RossIII: The idea is that the conversion from Item to - Item is applied when the button is pressed, instead of gluing the lines together. – Ryan O'Hara Mar 6 '13 at 2:46
@minitech it appears I misread that. Oops – Richard J. Ross III Mar 6 '13 at 3:28
+1 so much! I've always been so frustrated with the way this works, but never thought to make a meta post about it. The list button is completely broken (same problem with numbered lists too). I always end up typing in the markup directly for lists. – Ben Lee Mar 7 '13 at 21:39
If you meant to bump the question with that edit, please make your edits substantial. Otherwise just offer a bounty. – Bart Apr 14 '13 at 11:44
@Bart didn't mean to bump. But bounty sounds good. – Lukas Knuth Apr 14 '13 at 11:46
I don't understand why you would want your list to all be on one line. – Lance Roberts Apr 16 '13 at 13:52
I think this is a bug, not a feature request – endolith Apr 10 at 18:33

You can use this userscript for Chrome (should be easy to make it work on Firefoz):
