Creating and Using Multilevel Lists
Figure 11-22 The Multilevel List gallery offers a variety of list options.
You create a multilevel list using the same methods as you would to add bullets or
numbering. The main difference is that you are working with multiple list levels, as opposed to a
single list level. When using a multilevel list, you can change the list level by using any of
the following methods:
• To promote a list level, press Enter. Continuing to press Enter will promote the list
item to the highest level, at which point the list will end.
• Press Tab to demote the list level, which moved the text at the cursor position to the
right, Shift+Tab to promote the list level, which moves the text out toward the left
To use Tab and Shift+Tab, the option Set Left And First Indent With Tabs And
Backspace must be selected in the AutoCorrect dialog box on the AutoFormat
As You Type tab. To display the AutoCorrect dialog box, on the File tab, click
Options, click Proofing, and then click AutoCorrect Options.
• On the Home tab, in the Paragraph group, click Increase Indent to demote the list
level, or Decrease Indent to promote the list level.
