Creating a Quick List
Controlling Automatic Lists
If you want full control over your lists, you need to make sure that you have the
AutoFormat options turned off for numbering and bullets. The rationale behind this is that
automatic formatting options for list features can conflict with numbered and
bulleted lists. If you want to manually add the number and bullet formatting, clear these
options before you begin list-making. To do so, follow these steps:
1. On the File tab, click Options and then click Proofing.
2. Click the AutoCorrect Options button and then click the AutoFormat As You
Type tab.
In the Apply As You Type section, make sure Automatic Bulleted Lists and
Automatic Numbered Lists are cleared. (Note that these options are selected
by default.)
For more on the AutoFormat As You Type options, see the section, “Managing
AutoFormat Effectively,” on page 334.
Creating a Quick List
Word makes it easy for you to create both numbered and bulleted lists from existing text
and as you type. To create a list from existing text, select the text and then click either
Bullets or Numbering on the Home tab in the Paragraph group. Each selected paragraph will
be formatted as a single numbered or bulleted list item. As mentioned, you can also create
lists while you type. To create a quick list while you type, follow these steps:
1. Place the insertion point where you want to add the list.
2. Click the Numbering button if you want to create a numbered list, or click Bullets if
you want to create a bulleted list. Both are shown in Figure 11-13.
3. The list item is added. Type your first item then press Enter. The next bullet or number
is added automatically.
