Make bulleted lists act correctly when it's moved by text wrap
The bullets on the image attached have a left indent of 3 mm and a first line left indent -3 mm, but have incorrect layout, because the adjacent text box has text wrap applied, which displaces the text with bullets.
The fix is now available in the Beta builds of InDesign. You can download the latest beta build from Download section of InDesign Prerelease portal.
1. Go to adobeprerelease.com
2. Log in with your Adobe Id.
3. Once logged in, search for “InDesign CC Prerelease” program in the list.
4. Click on the program to join the same.
5. You can download the latest available build (184.108.40.206) from “Builds and Plugins” section on the page.
6. The steps for installing the build can be found in the release notes.

Just stumbled across this problem myself—apparently Adobe hasn't addressed it yet, as I'm running the 14.0.2 version of InDesign, and still see it. It becomes especially apparent when only some of the bulleted lines are affected—in this case, the red box has a text wrap around it, and although it doesn't actually touch any of the text (in other words, it isn't even doing anything) the two last items in the list are kicked to the left just a bit. A real problem.

I am also having this problem!
Text wrap is using the scaling of an image to also scale the hard number keyed in. For example, and image scaled to 75% with a text wrap of .25" will wrap the text at .1875".
This is a major issue in InDesign. I cannot rely on bulleted lists to behave properly and often have to manually setup bulleted lists.
Thanks, that’s great to hear!
Thank’s Payal – you can download the video from my server:
The image box in the left is set to »wrap bounding box«.

Can you please just add a small demo video (on WeTransfer/Youtube/Dropbox) and share the link, so that we can properly understand the problem you are facing.

I'm wondering, if this is a feature request or a bug report ...?! Anyway.
