If I choose decrease indent from the toolbar it removes the bullets or numbering.

Your first look like it was a Nested Bullet lists, Not done with Margins
If this is tru, Each lower item should start with a tag <li>
A new "list" is started wit <UL, or OL>
For: <UL type= "disc or circle or square">
For: <OL type=1 or a or A ori or I>

<ul type="disc">
<li>first level un-ordered</li>
<ol type="A">
<li second level Uppercase lettered </li>
<ul type="square">
<li>Third level with disc</li>
</ul>
<li> another second level</li>
</ol>
<li>another first level</li>
</ul> /* done */

Are the bullets completely gone or just off left side of display.

add to css

li{margin-left:3%;}

from this thread

@ Perkin
the bullets are completely gone, I played around with the li{margin-left:3%;}, it didn't preserve the bullets, but thanks for the help.

@ the ducks
You are right, these are not really "margins", that was an inaccurate description.
I have problems to alter the htm to get the bullets to the left side. Here is the htm: (And is there an other way to alter it, eg automatically without going into htm?)

Thanks a lot for your help!
