Troubleshooting guide for bullets and numbers

Troubleshooting guide for bullets and numbers

  • Problem: Every line is bulleted or numbered instead of just the first line.

  • Solution: To add text beneath a bulleted or numbered item in a list without adding a bullet or number, place the insertion point at the end of the list item and press SHIFT+ENTER. The new line indents and aligns with the text in the previous line. Add text, and then press SHIFT+ENTER again to create another indented line, or press ENTER to create another numbered or bulleted line.

  • Problem: When I make changes to the bullets or numbers in a list, not all the bullets or numbers change.

  • Solution: When you click a bullet or number in a list, all the items on that level of the list are selected. The bullet or number clicked is highlighted in dark gray, while the rest of the bullets or numbers in the list at that level are highlighted in light gray.

To change the formatting of the bullets or numbers, click a bullet or number in the list, and then click a button the Formatting toolbar (toolbar: A bar with buttons and options that you use to carry out commands. To display a toolbar, press ALT and then SHIFT+F10.) to make changes.Problem: Custom tab characters disappear when I add or remove bullets.Solution: When you add bullets to or remove them from lines of text that contain custom tab stops and tab characters, Microsoft Word removes the tab characters and retains the tab stops.Do one of the following:Click where you want the tab character to appear, and press the TAB key to reinsert the tab character.Avoid adding or removing bullets from items that contain custom tab stops and tab characters.Note Creating a custom tab is a two-step process.
