moderated Question about Bullets and Headings


Tom Cramer
 

Hello,

I'm trying to format a document using Microsoft Word 365, and I am
wanting to bullet a couple of lists and use some headings, like
heading 1, 2, and 3.
I found the bullets in the ribbons, but is there a quick keyboard
command to apply them? I can't find it anywhere. And, I thought there
was a key stroke for the headings and subheadings as well, like Alt 1
or Alt 2 or something like that.
Am I off here?

Hi, Tom. There is no quick way to apply bullets in a list. The way it works is this, when you start a list, and press ENTER to go to the next line to put the next list item, the first item in the list will be bulleted, and so forth. This only works if bullets are turned on in the proofing>autocorrect menu.

The command to change text to a heading works like this, if you write some text on a line, then select that line, ALT plus CONTROL plus 1 on the numbers row, not the NumPad, will create a heading one. ALT plus CONTROL plus 2 will create a heading two, etc.

Hi all,

Control Shift L is your hot key to place a bullet. If you hit enter one time, you will go to the next line of which then would continue the bullets. Hitting enter/return twice will discontinue the bullets.

Glad to know that, Rick. I wasn't aware of that. Is there a hot key for numbered lists, too?

Thank you.

Bill, I'm sorry, but that's incorrect, and you can prove it to yourself.

In a word document, type several sentences or phrases on their own lines.  Afterward, select that block of text and apply bullets.  

ALT + H, followed by
U - Create an unnumbered (bulleted) list; you're then presented with the selection pane for the bullet you wish to use (None by default).
N - Numbered list; you're then presented with the selection pane for the numbering scheme you want
M - Multilevel list; you're then presented with the selection pane for the multilevel notation scheme you want

If you happen to have typed the individual lines with a different number of tab stops at their start, that will be used to set up levels in any one of the above list types, just like hitting tab does when you're entering them by hand.  And if you add tab stops on a list already formatted, it will apply the bullet/number/level appropriate to the indent level.

When I deal with numbered lists, I start with the first, 1 and a period. They will continue until a double entry or return is applied. I am not aware of a hot key though.

I don't think this method will work if autobulleting and autonumbering are turned off.

Hi, Brian. I realize I was wrong about the bullets, and I didn't know about CTRL plus SHIFT plus L to start bulleting, either.

Hello, Tom,
My favorite way to go about using bullets is to write the list first, with a space before the first letter of each list item, then select the text and press CTRL+Shift+L. I place a space before each item because when I bullet the list, when using the arrow keys to read through what I have written, JAWS actually tells me I have a bullet. If there is not a space, it will not read the bullet if you want to navigate through letter by letter with the arrow keys. I've always found this to be the fastest way, because I personally don't like autobullets.

Sincerely,
Jasmine

Hi,

You can set headings with CTRL+ALT+1 (level 1), CTRL+ALT+2 (level 2) and CTRL+ALT+3 (level 3). But I prefer ALT+SHFT+ left and right arrow keystroces because so is heasier to check the level of the heading.
ALT+SHFT+left arrow gives current heading level, the same keystroce twice gives up one level, triple same keystroce 2 levels up and so on.
ALT+SHFT+right arrow gives one step lower level

Artur
