Bullets

To add bullet points to your document, click on the bullets icon MF_BulletPoints.  This will automatically create a Level 1 bullet point of your current paragraph.  If you have selected any text, all that text will be converted to a Level 1 bullet. 

 

You can have up to three levels of bullet points as follows:

Bullet Points Example

To create a new bullet point at the same level, press the return key and the new bullet will be created.  To automatically move to the next level, press the tab key straight after you have pressed return to create a new bullet. This is when you are in the first text character position of the bullet -  in the example above, this would be where the 'L' of Level is in each line.  To move back a level, press the backspace key from the first text character position or press Shift+Tab..

 

To take off bullets, you can either click on the bullets icon, press the backspace button (if you are in Level 1 and in the first text character position) or press the return key twice.

 

The left margin and right and left indents can also be set when using bullet points to create more formatting options.  First line indents are not available when using bullets.

 

The character used as a bullet point for each level can be changed in Options.

 

Automatic Bulleting: If Automatic Bulleting is set in Options, then if you are at the beginning of a line and you enter the character you have set as the First Level Bullet Character, that line will automatically be converted to a bullet point.
