Mosaico displays editing icons depending on the nature of the text. However when text is to be edited the Format drop down does not include the ability to create bullets or numbered lists. Where are the edit icons configured in Mosaico templates?

  • Is anyone able to help. Users want to be able to insert bullets and numbering and it's not available in the verison 2.0 beta2 but on the Mosaico website the format drop downs show the bullet and numbering icons. How can these be made available in the CiviCRM Mosaico extension? – Martin Fuggle Jun 17 '17 at 11:50

To add bulleted and numbered lists to the Mosaico editor, install the Mosaico Toolbar Editor (com.ginkgostreet.mosaicotoolbarconfig) extension.

Then go to Administer > CiviMail > Mosaico Settings, and edit the Mosaico Toolbar Settings field and insert bullist numlist after hr.

Hopefully this might be incorporated into CiviCRM Mosaico one day so that it wouldn't be necessary to install another extension but for now this is how to do it.


I opened Word, pasted the text I wanted bulleted, then bulleted it, then copied it and pasted it into Mosaico template. The bullets held.

    The Mosaico website shows that Mosaico has under the Format>Block menu the addition of Bullet Lists and Number Lists. It also has a Line Height option. We have just upgraded to the latest version of Mosaico in CiviCRM but these features are not included. The answer above is not ideal and neither is it ideal to enter source mode to use <ul> and <li>. Is there some reason that what is displayed on the Mosaico website cannot be included in the CiviCRM Mosaico extension? – Martin Fuggle May 17 '19 at 4:02

Once the extension is installed here is where to find TinyMCE identifiers
