The Ghost editor comes with minimum formatting options to format text. When you highlight a certain text with the aim of formatting it, you will find very minimum options. There is no option to add a bulled and numbered list like Gutenberg.

So, what if you want to add a bullet or numbered list on your blog post? Basic Markdown knowledge is required to do so.
