Is there a way to do nested bulleted lists with the new Slack markdown / formatting tools?

E.g. I tried this

 * something
   * nested something
 * something else

but it doesn't render it as

  • something
    • nested something
  • something else

I couldn't find info regarding this on their help page

  • Have you tried using <ol> to create an ordered list, then a <li>, followed by an <ol> to create a sub-list? Also, "Tip: When you copy and paste text in markdown from another source into Slack, you can quickly apply formatting by pressing (Mac) or (Windows/Linux)." So you could use a markdown editor to get your <ol> and/or <ul> – spikey_richie Nov 26 '19 at 14:19
  • @spikey_richie I'm not sure what you mean. Can you use html tags in Slack messages? – radoh Nov 26 '19 at 14:23
  • Those aren't HTML tags, they're markdown. markdownguide.org/basic-syntax – spikey_richie Nov 26 '19 at 15:17
  • Actually, scrap that. My bad. – spikey_richie Nov 26 '19 at 15:17
