Notes

This is best explained on the video.  In Beaver Builder version 2.4 a list module was introduced. I can see why it will help non-coders and template makers. It creates more semantic  markup that trying to create the effect with the icon module.

But for simple styling I feel altering CSS values is quicker and more flexible. It may also help Beaver Builder Lite users.

See the Bullet Point Lists template in action.

Code

HTML

We use the text module so the code does not need to be added manually:

<ul>
<li>This is my special list.</li>
<li>This is my custom list.</li>
<li>This list item is longer so we can set the text-indent correctly.</li>
<li>This is my styled list.</li>
<li>This only used one type of bullet.</li>
</ul>

But on example show a reversed ordered list and that this need to be added via the text (not visual tab):

<ol reversed="">
<li> Preheat oven to 425°F</li>
<li> Mix all the ingredients</li>
<li> Dump it all into a greased pan</li>
<li> Bake for 40 minutes</li>
<li> Take out and let cool 30 minutes</li>
<li> Eat</li>
</ol>
