I've started to embrace full-screen mode for many of my apps.


But one thing is particularly annoying: though bullets are available in Apple Mail when not in full-screen mode, the moment I enter full-screen mode, the bullet icons disappears from the message toolbar.


I've searched for shortcuts to no avail.


Anyone have any idea how to get bullets into an email while in full-screen mode?

    I have no trouble entering lists in Full Screen. I'm not sure what it is you are saying disappears. I can make a list from the menu — Format > Lists > Insert Bulleted List — or from the toolbar — Click the Show format bar button (if necessary), then click the Lists button.

    Thanks for the response, Jeffrey. Your suggestion (Format > Lists > Insert Bulleted Lists) is helpful, but I was trying not to simply use the toolbar icon, not hover the mouse up high until the system menu bar appears.


    HOWEVER, I did find the solution. If you customize your message toolbar to show lists, you MUST move the icon to the right side of the menu bar. If you leave it on the left, it gets repalced by the "send / cancel" buttons. Odd that mail doesn't know to shift the list button over to the right, but there you have it.


    FYI, this is true for most buttons...if you customize your message menu bar, but leave the options on the left, they will be replaced by the Send / Cancel buttons when in full-screen mode.
