Although the Bullet Library offers several built-in choices, you’re not stuck with
just the ones you see in Figure 2-19. Feel free to create your own bullet and add it
to the bullet library. To do that, click Home, click the Bullets button’s down arrow,
and then select Define New Bullet (Alt, H, U, D). The Define New Bullet dialog
box has three buttons:
• Symbol. Click Symbol to open the Symbol dialog box, which lets you choose
from dozens of different symbols and characters, from Greek letters to shapes
such as hearts, diamonds, and arrows. Click the symbol you want, and then click
OK to close the Symbol dialog box. Click OK again to close the Define New
Bullet dialog box and insert the new symbol into your document as a bullet.
• Picture. Click this button to browse through a wide range of bullet shapes,
colors, and styles. Select the one you want and click OK to close the Picture Bullet
dialog box, and then click OK to close the Define New Bullet dialog box and use
the picture you selected as a bullet.
Tip: You’re not limited to the pictures Word displays in the Picture Bullet dialog box. If you want to use
your own picture (such as a small version of the company logo) as a bullet, click the Import button at
the bottom of the Picture Bullet dialog box. The window that opens lets you choose a picture from your
computer’s hard drive. Navigate to the image you want, select it, and then click Open to add that picture
to the Picture Bullet dialog box.
• Font. To change the font of your bullet, click this button. When the Font dialog
box opens, use its selections to change the color or size of the bullet. (Word
shows you a preview as you make your selections.) Click OK to close the Font
dialog box and go back to the Define New Bullet dialog box. There, click OK
again to apply your changes.
