Chapter 3. Changing the Appearance of Text > Creating and Modifying Lists

Creating and Modifying Lists

To organize lists in a document, such as lists of events, names, numbers, or procedures, you can format the information in a bulleted or numbered list. A bullet is a small graphic, such as a dot, that introduces an item in a list. Where the order of items is not important, use bullets. Use numbers instead of bullets when you want to emphasize sequence, as in a series of steps. If you move, insert, or delete items in a numbered list, Word renumbers the list for you. If the items in a list are out of order, alphabetically or numerically, you can sort the items in ascending or descending order using the Sort command on the Table menu.


For emphasis, you can change any bullet or number style to one of Word’s predefined formats. For example, you can switch round bullets to check boxes, or change the letters in Roman numerals from uppercase to lowercase. You can also customize the list style or insert a picture as a bullet. Use the Bullets and Numbering dialog box to modify, format, and customize your list.
