How to Format the Numbers or Bullets in a List
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.

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.
You can customize the bullets on bulleted lists in Word using different symbols and colors. However, what if you want to use your own picture as the bullets on your list? Replacing the standard bullets with pictures is easy and we’ll show you how. We used Word 2016 to illustrate this feature, but this procedure will work in Word 2013 as well.
By default, the plain black circular bullets are used when creating bulleted lists. However, you can customize your bulleted lists. We will show you how to change the symbol used as the bullets on the list and how to change the color of the bullets. We used Word 2016 to illustrate this feature.
Bulleted and numbered lists can be used in your documents to format, arrange and emphasize text. In this lesson, you will learn how to modify existing bullets, insert new bulleted and numbered lists, select symbols as bullets, and format multilevel lists.

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.
In the Microsoft Word 2007 home tab tutorials you will find most of your basic features. These are the tools you will find yourself using the most when creating a Word document. With this tab you are able to change the style, size and color of your font, align test, create bullets and numbers, and cut and paste text.
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...
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.
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.
