gallery, and then click None.

Creating Effective Lists
In our time-pressured work world, everybody loves lists. Lists give people reading your
document an easy way to understand what you think are the most important points to
remember. A list might outline key thoughts, reinforce main topics, describe a process, or
capsulize memorable concepts. Adding bulleted and numbered lists to your document can
go a long way toward making your document more readable, which is something for which
your readers will be grateful.
Throughout this topic, both bulleted and numbered lists are referred to simply as lists
because they behave the same way. When you choose a bullet, of course, you’re using a
special symbol, character, or graphic to start a line. When you use a number, you’re
selecting the font, size, and color of the numeral you want to use. In addition, you can use roman
numerals, letters, and other line identifiers in numbered lists.
