Bullets and Numbered Lists

In Word bulleted lists can help arrange Word documents so they are clearer. In Word numbered lists can do the same thing.

Did you know?

One of Word's inconveniences is the way it handles bulleted and numbered lists. Sometimes no matter what you do, a list will not display the way you want it to.

When this happens, simply start over.

  • Select the entire list.
  • Using the Bullets and Numbering dialog box, select a new type of bullets or numbers.
  • Click OK.

After doing this, you can usually change your selection back to the type of bullets or numbers you want.
