How to Change the Alignment of the Numbers in a Numbered List
By default, the numbers on numbered lists are left-aligned in the space allotted for the numbering. However, aligning them to the center or the right (pictured on the right above) is easy, and we’ll show you how. When the numbers are left-aligned, the decimal points are not aligned and any items with two or more digits are closer to the text of the items than the one-digit numbers, as shown on the left in the above image.

A numbered list in Word is simply a series of numbered paragraphs. There may be times when you want to have a paragraph or two without numbering in the middle of a numbered list and then start the numbering again after the unnumbered paragraphs. Removing numbers from items in a numbered list is easy.
By default, Word uses numbers (1, 2, 3, etc.) when you create numbered lists. However, you can change the numbers to a different type or to letters. The character after the number or letter can also be changed. We used Word 2016 to illustrate this feature, but this procedure works in 2013 as well.
We all know that the default numbered list used in Microsoft Word is like – 1, 2, 3, etc. But if you wish, you can change them to letters or another type, like the Roman numbers. If we look closely at them, numbers or letters are added with a dot (.) beside them...
Changing the type of numbers used in a numbered list is easy, but what if you want to change the formatting on just the numbers–say, make the numbers bold, but not the text? It’s not obvious how to do that, but it can be done.
Word tries to be helpful by automatically applying formatting to your document based on what you type. One example of this is when Word automatically creates a numbered list for you when you enter some text that Word thinks should be a numbered list.
Creating and removing numbered lists in Word is easy using the “Numbering” command on the ribbon. However, if you prefer using the keyboard, there is a way to quickly create a numbered list using a keyboard shortcut. We will add a keyboard shortcut to the command for creating numbered lists. To do so, right click anywhere on the ribbon and select “Customize the Ribbon” from the popup menu.
You’ve created a really long list of items in Word, and now discover you need to reverse the order. Do you manually move each item? Luckily, no. We’ll show you a trick for reversing a list in Word that works on numbered and bulleted lists. When we talk about reversing a list, we mean that the last item becomes the first, the second to last item becomes the second, etc.
For many people, creating a bulleted or numbered list in Word is a difficult task. But, it doesn't need to be difficult. If you take advantage of the options Word provides, working with lists is a snap!
Bulleted and numbered lists can be used in your documents to arrange and format text to draw emphasis. In this lesson, you will learn how to modify existing bullets, insert new bulleted and numbered lists, and select symbols as bullets.
We list out things in Word using bullets. There are basic bullets available in Microsoft Word as numbers, symbols and more. We might be using numbers, dot symbols and regular symbols as bullets in Word. When you are preparing a project document or presenting any seminar, then it would be very impressive, if you use a ‘bulleted list’. You can customize or change the way we use bullets in Word to make the document look attractive and impress your boss or colleague. Have you ever thought of using pictures as bullets in Word? Here, I am not talking about the default pictures which Word provides.
