every sentence will be affected in the same paragraph, and all paragraphs with that style applied.
you need to create separate paragraph styles to suit.
I figured it out.
Once you go to paragraph styles and adjust your bullet positioning.
You have to go back to the List type and put it back from bullets to none.
Now you can type and apply bullets to whatever you want without every sentence becoming a bullet.
Also for future reference. You can do a hard return. That is Shift and return at the same time will help.
What you could do is: select all the bullet point copy that you want changed, select the (burger icon) menu to the right of the screen. This is situated under the Customise Control Panel icon. (This menu will only show if you have selected the text first).
Then select "Bullets and Numbering..." from the menu, then choose from the "List Type" which style you want, and choose the "Tab Position" to your desired distance.
This will change bullet point distance, as well as affect all new bullet points created.
Hopefully this helps you out and others.

FYI, terminology is a bit fluid, so not all will agree what something is called. That said, most people I've encountered think of a paragraph return and a hard return as the same thing, and a line break (shift return) and a soft return (soft, because it doesn't create a new paragraph) are two names for the same thing.
