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.
We’re once again going to review this. Thanks for reporting.

I'm having this same issue with numbered lists. I'm making edits to an existing document. I've updated my InDesign since the last time I worked on it, and now anywhere that I have icons in numbered lists, the alignment has gone whacky (it doubles the left indent for every line after the first line that wraps around the icon). Is this a bug fix that is coming any time soon?
On my machine it looks like it's completely ignoring the text wrap. I'm on a Mac OS Mojave fully loaded. This is a major problem for us as we use nothing but bulleted type.
HELP! The Bulleted lists feature does not work regardless of text wrapping or not. Cannot be corrected via tabs or paragraph palette. Instead, bulleted lists need to be created manually via hanging indents and the good old bullet symbol. OR, saved back and built in 2019.

This is not Fixed!
Text indent has been changed to be relative to the text wrap boundary, but the tab origin remains the frame inset. In this state, it works as expected for indented lines, but it does not work as expected for bulleted or autonumbered lines.
To completely fix it, the starting point of the tab position must be the boundary of the text wrap.

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.
