Hour 4. Formatting with Word 2002 > Inserting Numbers and Bullets

Inserting Numbers and Bullets

Word makes numbered and bulleted lists easy to produce. Assuming that the typical AutoFormat options are set (select Tools, AutoCorrect Options, AutoFormat As You Type and make sure that the options labeled Automatic Bulleted Lists and Automatic Numbered Lists are checked), follow these steps to create a formatted and indented numbered list:

  1. Press Tab to start the first numbered item.

  2. Type the number and punctuation, such as 1. (follow the number with a period).

  3. Press Tab.

  4. Type the text for the first numbered item.

  5. Press Enter. Word converts your previous text to a numbered list and starts the next item in the list started by number 2.

    If you don't want the next numbered item that automatically appears, you can click the icon that automatically appears next to the first number to stop the automatic numbering or cancel it altogether for the rest of the document.

  6. Keep entering numbered items. When you finish, press Enter without typing any text after a number and Word stops creating the numbered list at that point.
