Chapter 3. More Day-to-Day Productivity ... > Using Bullets and Numbered Lists

Using Bullets and Numbered Lists

Bullets and numbered lists provide an excellent way to segregate, list, and organize information for a reader. You can control the appearance, or format, of a bulleted or numbered list. The bullet or numbering format you use last becomes the default format; that is, the next time you create a bulleted or numbered list, Word uses the same format you used the last time you created a bulleted or numbered list. As you'll learn in this section, you can easily change the default bullet or numbering format by choosing one of seven default bullet formats or one of seven default numbering formats. You can modify any of these to create your own formats.

Note

Here's a quick refresher on when to use bulleted lists and when to use numbered lists:

  • Use a bulleted list when you have several related items, but the order in which the reader sees them doesn't matter much.

  • Use a numbered list when you have several related items, but the order does matter: for instance, in describing a procedure containing steps that must be followed consecutively.
