Option to have lines of list items align with text of first line rather than the bullet.

    If you need convincing: In the attachment it is not obvious whether the highlighted word is part of the list item. Of course line numbers can be turned on, but that is a less elegant solution and some prefer to work without them as they are distracting and unnecessary in a text editor.

    I'll leave this issue open as a prompt to consider again in the future.

    Without an empty line between them, that word will always be a part of the list item above it.

    In the attachment, are there two list items or one? Even if syntax highlighting for lists worked, it is not immediately obvious.

    There is actually only one list item in the attachment.

    While that example is extremely contrived, it's at least a valid example that could be misinterpreted.

    It's not contrived in the slightest as it actually happened.
