Creating and Using Multilevel Lists
Text Indent Changes the amount of space between the number or bullet and the
beginning of the text
Follow Number With Changes the default Tab character following the number to
a space or nothing
Add Tab Stop At If using a Tab character following the bullet or number, this
option adds a manual tab stop at the selected position
Caution !
When you change list indents by using the Adjust List Indents dialog box or using
the indent methods described previously in this chapter, such as using the ruler or
Paragraph dialog box, you apply direct formatting on top of the list, which can result
in list instabilities. Consider creating a list style instead of using direct formatting,
which is discussed in the section titled “Creating a New List Style,” on page 375.
Creating and Using Multilevel Lists
Some of your documents might require more than a simple bulleted or numbered list.
Perhaps you want to incorporate a fairly sophisticated outline in your document, or you want
to spell out a technique process that essentially nests lists within lists. Word 2010 includes
a feature known as multilevel lists that enable you to define up to nine numbering levels.
You can mix numerals and letters, uppercase and lowercase letters, and a variety of styles
to create the type of list that best its the needs of your document. If you don’t see a
multilevel list style in the gallery that its what you’re looking for, you can create a new list style
that directly maps to the requirements of your content.
Applying a Multilevel List
You access the Multilevel List gallery by clicking the Multilevel List tool to the right of the
Numbering tool in the Paragraph group of the Home tab. The Multilevel List gallery is
shown in Figure 11-22.
