Format Lost between Tasks and To Do


Outlook version
Outlook 2016 32 bit
Email Account
Exchange Server
I use Outlook 365 Tasks on my Win11 desktop for all my task management. I also rely on Microsoft’s Android To Do for routinely accessing them on my phone when traveling. Unfortunately, the formatting between the two apps is not compatible so I have eliminated all graphics and keep the formatting simple.

However, there are still problems; for example, even though bullets are now supported in To Do, they don’t sync properly with Tasks

I originally defined the bullet list in To Do as follows:
  • Plan1
    • Sub A
    • Sub B
    • Sub C
    • Sub D

In Outlook Tasks, it looks like this
• Plan1

• Sub A
• Sub B
• Sub C
• Sub D

I have also tried first defining the list in Outlook Tasks, and in To Do, it looks fine, but if I make any edit, once opened again in Outlook, the list is flattened as above.

Is there a particular font or type of bullet character that would sync better?
