bullet points in pages for ios

iOS and iPadOS

Hi. Does anyone know how to make content in pages for ios as bullet points? I can select the text i want bulleted and i can select to have it bulleted in the format tab of pages, but when i double talp on bullet points, it doesn't make the selected text as bullets. Does anyone know how to get the bullets to appear as the sellected text? There seems no way to go out of the format menu without dismissing the pop up but that means your text isn't formatted.

I hope that makes sense. Thanks muchly.
