Customizing multilevel lists

You can customize an existing multilevel list (see how to create a multilevel list) or apply your specifications to the format using the Define new Multilevel list dialog box.

Customizing bulleted lists

You can customize an existing bulleted list (see how to create a bulleted list) or apply your own specifications to the bullets format using the Define New Bullet dialog box.

Creating bulleted lists

Bulleted lists, also named as unordered lists, are usually used for listing objects, comparable actions, etc. for which order is not important. Unlike a numbered list, all elements of an unordered list are separated by the same symbols, bullets.

Saving Documents

Saving your document in the same location with the same name is extremely easy. However, you need to take additional actions to put your copy to other place, and with a different name.

Creating numbered lists

Numbered lists are similar to bulleted lists, except that instead of bullets, Word places sequential numbers in the front of the first line. This feature is handy because if you add a paragraph in the middle of a numbered list or rearrange the order of the paragraphs in a list, Word automatically renumbers the paragraphs so that they retain their sequence.

How to create a list with restarting and continuing numbering

You can tell Word to start from any number you prefer, restart numbering from 1, or continue numbering.

Opening Documents

The Open dialog box is your key to finding and retrieving Word documents.

Skip spelling and grammar check for the selected text

Sometimes you need to skip parts of the document during a spell check. E.g., memos and letters can have headings and address blocks with names and other text that slow down the spell checker. Blocks of programming code or foreign words should not be checked for spelling too.
Also you may need to quote words and phrases with mistakes.

Creating a multilevel list

Multilevel lists can contain numbered lists and bulleted lists. Automatic lists are a handy feature because if you add a paragraph in the middle of a numbered list or rearrange the order of the items in a list, Word automatically renumbers the paragraphs so that they retain their sequence.

Customizing numbered lists

If you need to customize an existing numbered list (see how to create a numbered list) or apply your specifications to the number format, use the Define New Number Format dialog box.
