Part 6. Formatting Characters and Paragr... > Creating Bulleted and Numbered Lists

Creating Bulleted and Numbered Lists

Click where you want the list to start, and then click the Bullets button on the Formatting toolbar.

Word inserts a bullet. Type the first item in the list.

Press Enter. Word inserts a bullet on the next line for you.

Continue typing items in your list. After the last item, press Enter twice to turn off the bullets.

INTRODUCTION

Setting off items in a list with numbers or bullets is a great way to present information clearly. Word's bulleted and numbered list features add the bullets or numbers for you, and they create hanging indents so that when text in an item wraps to the next line, it doesn't wrap underneath the number or bullet.


TIP

Creating Blank Lines Between Items

If you want a blank line between items in a bulleted or numbered list, press Shift+Enter and then Enter at the end of each item (instead of just pressing Enter).


To create a numbered list, follow steps 1 through 4, but click the Numbering button on the Formatting toolbar.

To change a numbered list to a bulleted list (or vice versa), select the list, and then click the Bullets or Numbering button.

Word makes the change for you. Click anywhere to deselect the text.
