Unless you're talking about MAC addresses, you probably mean Mac. – Wuffers Mar 24 '12 at 12:06

option+tab inserts a bullet or increases indentation level, and shift+tab decreases indentation level. They only work in rich text mode though, and TextEdit always uses the (HYPHEN BULLET) character for bullets.

Although the - character is used by default, after the indentation is changed, you can highlight the bullets and change the character using the "List bullets and numbering" drop-down menu. – cdwilson Nov 29 '14 at 20:27
