There is a new feature that addresses this specific issue in CC 2019 (v 14) and a work-around that is effective for a 1-column layout in earlier versions. Which version are you using?
We can explain the one that will work for you once you let us know your version.
Thank you! I'm on CC 2018, so still v13, I believe.
In v 13 or earlier, define the bullets normally with desired space between the bullets:
Then select the bullets, and set the Span to Span All:
If you are using paragraph styles, you can use Redefine Styles to update all of the bullet lists in your document.
Thank you! That worked!
I realized I also then had to make sure my footnotes were set to "span across columns," too, so that they continue to format correctly.
Thanks again for the fast help!
Great! Glad I could help.
