Well, hitting return is working for me...

You could also try writing out the list without bullets or numbering, and then highlight the list when it's finished and then choose the option - I just tested that method and it also worked for me.

Just a thought, but it could depend on your browser. I had this problem when I first joined.  I discovered (with the help of another member) that when I log in via Safari, I can't do lists, etc. In fact, I don't even get the toolbar with all the text options.   When I log in via Firefox, I have the full toolbar and everything works just fine.
