Create a bulleted or numbered list

You can quickly add bullets or sequential numbers to existing lines of text, or you can automatically create bulleted and numbered lists as you type. If you're creating bulleted lists for web pages, you can use any picture as a bullet.

You can set many other properties for a list, such as margins and text properties, by applying a style to the list or a particular list item. For more information, see Create a style.
