i do engrave my bullets in stones (it's not difficult, they are just holes) and than throw them into the monitor. most of the time it works.

well, let's get serious.

when you you're in a text frame in edit mode you get two blue triangles in the horizontal ruler, move them until you have an indent.
then add a tabulator at the same horizontal position as the horizontal indent
add a bullet in the line and, with the tabulator key, jump under the tab.

if you need lists in your document, you will probably want to create a text style with the indent.

this works with 1.3.9.

what scribus does not support, is to automatically add the bullets or number the items... but i don't think that it will be a big problem for you...
