List Mode User Tab Key and Shift+Tab to the writing Functionality
When i'm using the bulleted List or the numbered List when i'm writing an email, there is a big problem when i use tab or shift tab it does not add a sub-list to the list.
If you see the Mail from Mac, and the Microsoft Office all of those have the same functionality when you Press tab and shift+Tab.
This is very anoying because it increate the amount of time that take to write emails with lists.
While I totally agree that Tab and Shift-Tab is the proper solution, you can also use Command-] and Command-[ to change the indentation in the bulleted lists. Convoluted, but usable.

I'm amazed this hasn't been fixed yet. Before integrations with other apps or anything else, the writing experience is paramount to the utility of an email client. PLEASE FIX!
This is immensely important, and seems an odd feature to have broken. Most programs that incorporate text editing adhere to a set of standards where line spacing, indents, and keyboard shortcuts are concerned. The way that Airmail deals with bullets and numbers is highly counterintuitive, and may be reason enough for me to seek out another platform. I do quite like the application, but I use bullets so often that it's a nuisance.
Evernote also handles bullet points really well. I have to run both Mail.app and Airmail, just so that I can type well formatted lists in emails (and also because Mail.app will resize the embedded images that I put in my lists).
Please implement this or at least allow edits to the toolbar to have one for numbers and one for bullets so they can be one-clicked.
This has been my biggest pet peeve with Airmail since I first started using it a couple years ago. I used to always have bulleted lists in my emails, to-do items for myself and coworkers. I've given up on making lists in Airmail because it's so counter-intuitive and slow.
I want to use tab and shift-tab. I don't want to have to click on the arrow buttons in the edit menu. Very tedious. If I'm in a bulleted list, I should be able to tab to indent the entire bullet to a sub-bulleted-list. Right now when you tab, it just creates a tab inside the bullet! Why would I want this? And if I shift tab, I want to go back to the parent bulleted list. Right now if I shift tab, it actually brings me out of the message body field into the subject line text field above. Gah.
I've been waiting for years for this to be fixed, and I've brought it up in the past, but I don't see it being fixed anytime soon. I don't know why they haven't gotten more complaints about this. For an app that boasts about how fast it is to do things, I don't know why bullet lists are slow to create and work with, and unintuitive, involving additional button presses for sub-lists.
Please fix the way this works Airmail, and I will love you 100% and won't try check out every new mail client that comes out hoping that they'll be just like you but with better bullet list creation.
This! The ability to tab inside a bulleted list (one of the primary functions of email) is sorely missing from the otherwise brilliant app.
Bullet lists are an issue anyway on the Mac, with Outlook 2016 (and 2011) in such a sorry state it's just impossible to create a bullet list which is editable in a correct manner after it's been replied to.
