There is no buit in support. Adobe Presentations has an ad hoc solution - I'm not aware of the details.
First class support for lists is definitely a requested feature. It won't be the first release. Sorry about that.
Could I ask for some guidance on where first-class list support is in the feature roadmap? I have a client for whom this is highly desirable sooner rather than later. We'll need to make a decision as to whether to do this ourselves or wait for you guys.
If adobe presentations is using the TLF and has already done list support, would it not make sense for them to share their methods, particularly given that the TLF is open source and this is a feature that everyone needs?
