Making Lists
You can create a list from scratch or convert existing text into a list. To
create a list from scratch, follow these steps:
1. Click the Home tab.
2. Move the cursor where you want to create a list.
3. Click the Bullets, Numbering, or Multilevel List icon.
Word creates your list (bulleted or numbered).
4. Type your text and press Enter to create another blank item in your list.
5. Repeat Step 4 for each additional bullet or numbered item you want
to make.
If you have existing text, you can convert it into a list by following these
steps:
1. Click the Home tab.
2. Select the text you want to convert into a list.
3. Click the Bullets, Numbering, or Outline Numbering icon.
Word converts your selected text into your chosen list where each
paragraph appears as a separate item in the list.
Indenting list items
After you create a list, you may want to indent one list item underneath
another one. To indent an item in a list, follow these steps:
1. Move the cursor anywhere in the text in the list item you want to
indent.
2. Press the Home key to move the cursor to the front of the line.
3. Press the Tab key to indent an item to the right (or press the Shift+Tab
keystroke combination to indent an item to the left).
When you indent a list, Word changes the number or bullet style to set
the line apart from the rest of your list.
Converting list items back into text
If you have a list, you may want to convert one or more items back into
ordinary text. To convert a list item into plain text, follow these steps:
1. Click the Home tab.
2. Select the list items you want to convert into plain text.
