Chapter 6. Formatting in Microsoft Word > Creating Bulleted and Numbered Lists

Creating Bulleted and Numbered Lists

Bulleted and numbered lists are wonderful things. They give your readers’ eyes a break; they help you make your points more clearly; they lead students through processes and confused gadget-builders through instruction manuals. Word makes it easy to create lists the way you want them. As you saw with AutoFormat, Word will even do it automatically for you if you want.

The easiest way to create a numbered or bulleted list is to use the Numbering or Bullets tools on the Formatting toolbar. Simply position the cursor at the point you want to begin the list and click one of those two tools. If you click Numbering, a number 1 is inserted in your document. If you click Bullets, a bullet character appears. Create your list by typing an item and pressing Enter; Word moves the cursor to the next line and adds another bullet or the next number, depending on what you have selected.
