Creating Bulleted and Numbered Lists

You use lists to separate items of information that might otherwise be buried in a text paragraph. If the items don’t have to appear in a particular order, they usually appear in bulleted lists; for example, a list of drought-tolerant plants would be presented in a bulleted list. If the items have to appear in a particular order, they usually appear in numbered lists; for example, instructions for repotting a particular houseplant would be presented in a numbered list.

To convert a series of regular paragraphs to a bulleted list, you select the paragraphs and on the Formatting toolbar, click the Bullets button. Similarly, to convert regular paragraphs to a numbered list, you select the paragraphs and on the Formatting toolbar, click the Numbering button. To convert bulleted or numbered items back to regular paragraphs, select the items, and click the corresponding button to toggle it off.
