                                                                     1
6. Borders and Shading (Paragraph group)

   You can put a border around a word, or a group of words, a paragraph, or page. Obviously useful to draw
   attention to something.

   And if horizontal lines are your thing:




7. Bulleted, Numbered, and Multilevel lists (Paragraph group). Use “Increase Indent” (or decrease) or markers
   on rulers to adjust

   a. Bullets:

                Here
                There
                Somewhere

   b. Numbered list – you are looking at one using a, b, c… for the numbering format.

   c. Multilevel list. Type first word. Choose multilevel list type. Enter, and then type next word. List will be
      numbered 1 and 2. Go to the end of first item and Enter. It will be numbered 2. Press “tab” key and then
      number will change to “a”. Repeat, pressing “tab” to get new levels. I find these a bit of a pain to get
      right. You just have to keep fooling with it. Frequently the Format Painter is useful.

   d. Numbered list inside a numbered list. Instead of using the multilevel list, I frequently just put another
      numbered list inside an existing one. Right-click and choose “restart numbering” when necessary.
      Copy/paste whole blocks.
