Bullets / Indenting Text from Calculation

Post

     HI,

     I am creating a layout where users can write up reports.  As there are various reports I have created a layout which has buttons on it that can insert standard text so the user doesn't have to write repetitive info.  Insertion is via a button as it may be in different sections in different areas and this will allow them to put the text where they wish. 

      

     The button sets the specified field to do the following:  (Also, not sure I've done bullet points the best way but it's working so I went with it).

     Client_Reports 2::ReportBody & ¶ &

     TextStyleAdd ("Header 1 " ; Bold  +  Underline)  & ¶

      & ¶  & "•"  &  "   "  &  "Bullet Point 1 text / The problem is when the text goes on to the following line(s) it is not indenting the lines underneath."  

      & ¶  & "•"  &  "   "  &  "Bullet Point 2 text"  

     &  ¶  & "•"  &  "   "  &  "Bullet Point 3 text"

     &  ¶  & "•"  &  "   "  &  "Bullet Point 4 text"

     &  ¶  & "•"  &  "   "  &  "Bullet Point 5 text"

     .....and so on. 

     The problem with this is that if there are multiple lines to a bullet point they don't indent.  I wouldn't be surprised if I have made this more difficult than it needs be.  Is there a simpler, better way to 1 add bullets and 2 get the bullets to indent?
