Adding Bullets and Numbering
The best way to draw attention to a list is to format the items with bullets or numbers. Bullets are small symbols, such as circles or squares, that you can insert before the beginning of a paragraph. Bullets are typically used for an unsorted list of items. Use numbers instead of bullets for items that need to be in a specific order. If you move, insert, or delete items in a numbered list, InDesign sequentially renumbers the list for you.
Add Bullets or Numbering to a Paragraph
1. Select the paragraphs to which you want to add bullets or numbers.
2. Choose Type > Bulleted & Numbered Lists, and then click Apply Bullets or Apply Numbers.
The last used settings in the Bullets and Numbering dialog box are applied to the text.
