Changing a Bullet Symbol
An easy way to customize the look and feel of your document involves changing the
symbol used for the bullets in your lists. To customize bullets, click Symbol in the Define New
Bullet dialog box to display the Symbol dialog box, as shown in Figure 11-16.
Figure 11-16 Click the symbol you want to select as a new bullet character. If you need to be
consistent with lists in other documents, make note of the character code of the item you select.
The Symbol dialog box displays the available characters for the selected font. You can scroll
through the list using the vertical scroll bar to find a symbol you want to add or click the
symbol you like from the Recently Used Symbols row. Click OK to add the symbol.
If you don’t see the bullet symbol you were looking for, you can choose a different font by
clicking the Font arrow and selecting a new symbol font from the list. Now scroll through
the new symbols to find the one you want.
Notice that you can see the numeric character code in either decimal or hexadecimal
format for each character you select in the Symbol dialog box. This enables you to be sure
you’ve used the same bullet throughout this document and in other documents that need
a consistent style.
Tip
You can resize the Symbol dialog box to view additional rows and columns of symbols
at a time. To maximize or restore the dialog box, double-click the title bar.
