Subject:Bullets and number lists in word From:Robert Maxey <Bob_Maxey -at- MTN -dot- 3COM -dot- COM> Date:Tue, 2 Feb 1999 20:43:38 -0700
Here is another tip. when creating number lists, bullet lists in Word,
forget them until the entire document is created. Highlight the sections
where you want bullets or numbered lists, click the icon on the toolbar and
there you go.
This is what I have done for a lot of documents and it works OK for me. you
can also create a simple table with two columns. A narrow one for the
bullets and the rest for text. Insert a bullet in the narrow columns.
