Word Tip of the Day


Easily format all the bullets or numbers in a list (Word 2002)


By default, Word's automatic bullets and numbering use the same font attributes as the text to which you apply them. But that doesn't mean you have to settle for the defaults. You can easily apply unique font formatting to all the bullets or numbers in a list without affecting the list text. Better yet, if you're using Word 2002 you can get the job done without accessing the Bullets And Numbering dialog box.

To do so, click once on any of the bullets or numbers you want to modify. (If you double-click, Word opens the Bullets And Numbering dialog box.) When you do, Word selects all the bullets or numbers in the list; the selected items will be shaded in gray. (Note: If some of the bullets or numbers in your list use different formatting than others, Word selects only those that use the same formatting as the one you clicked on.) Next, apply the desired formatting using the tools on the Formatting toolbar. You can also make changes using the Font dialog box, which you can access by choosing Format | Font or by pressing [Ctrl]D. For instance, you can apply a different font type, size, color, style, or effect to your bullets. (As mentioned earlier, you can quickly access the Bullets And Numbering dialog box by double-clicking on a bullet or number.)
