Have you checked the formatting of the bulleted line's paragraph symbol
(visible with the Show/Hide toolbar button on)?

I've found that the formatting applied to the paragraph symbol usually is
applied to the bulleted character of that paragraph. Selecting just the
symbol (sometimes tricky) can give you an idea of what formatting is on this

Just a thought...

Good afternoon,

I'm working on a document which includes several important and specific
pre-operative patient list item instructions for a medical procedure.
Whenever I bold, underline, or use italics on a portion of the text, the
numbered or lettered "bullet" becomes the SAME. I've tried everthing

1. Deleting the bullet, then manually entering it.

2. Backspacing to the prior text and entering the bullet line again.

3. Deleting the entire line, then manually entering again.

4. Having a minor temper tantrum then trying again.

5. Wanting to put a "bullet" through my computer and forget the whole thing.

I continually check the paragraphs and fonts as I go but nothing seems to
work. I need to complete this project tomorrow. Any suggestions?

Thanking you in advance,
Nancy Arbeene
