Bulleting and numbering paragraphs
Bulleting and numbering not only highlight each point but indent the left margin of each paragraph. Highlight lines or paragraphs to be bulleted and select one of these toolbuttons
to obtain the following effects:
· Symbol bullet
1. Numbered bullet
A. Alphabetic uppercase bullet
a. Alphabetic lowercase bullet
You can also bullet one line⁄paragraph at a time without needing to highlight it if you click just to the left of the first character in the line⁄paragraph, then click the Bullet toolbutton. To remove the bullet, just click the bullet toolbutton again.
Having added one type of bulleting, you can easily change to another type without needing to remove bulleting, simply by clicking on a different bullet icon. E.g., you can change from symbol bullets to numbered bullets. This can sometimes also help to correct alignment and numbering errors.
Ctrl+[.] (period) applies symbol bullets.
Ctrl+[,] (comma) applies numbered bullets.
Shift+Ctrl+[.] (period) removes any bulleting (including alphabetical bulleting).
There is no keyboard shortcut for applying alphabetical bulleting.
Note that the depth of bullet indentation is determined not by the default tab size but in Main menu ⁄ View ⁄ Options ⁄ Article ⁄ Bullets.
You can choose the units for this measurement by going to Main menu ⁄ View ⁄ Options ⁄ Units and choosing Centimeters or Inches.
1. If you rearrange alphabetically or numerically bulleted lines or paragraphs by sorting them, this will not disturb the order of bullets and is a handy way of reordering paragraphs without having to remove bulleting first and replace it later.
