    Hi everyone,

    I hope this topic is in the right section.

    I am having trouble with the bullet points and numbering in word. When opening a new document and starting a bullet point list the default setting will be applied. But as soon as I write some normal test and then want to start another bullet list, all bullet point will shift completely. Sometimes just a few cm to the side and sometimes to the far right of the page. (pictures attached)

    Does anyone have an idea what I could try to fix this?

    Thanks in advance!

      ST,

      It’s hard to figure out what is happening from the provided screen shots.

      The easiest way to fix the problem is to select one of the correct bullets and use the format painter and then apply it to the ones in error.

      A longer term solution would be to create your own Bullet Point Style and then just apply that to all your lists.

       

      May the Forces of good computing be with you!
