To add bullets or numbers in a single level list, we need to use the same ‘Paragraph’ dialog box which we have been using in the previous sections. In this dialog box, under the ‘Outline & Numbering’ tab, we have two fields for ‘Outline’ and ‘Numbering’.
As we are using a single level list here, under ‘Outline’ select the ‘Outline level:’ as ‘Level 1’. After this, under ‘Numbering’, we have a ‘Numbering style:’ drop-down list. Select the required ‘List’ or ‘Numbering’ style from this drop-down list to choose the different bullet or number styles respectively.
This is how we can add bullets and numbers in a single level list.
To remove the bullets and numbers, simply select the ‘Numbering style:’ as ‘None’. This will remove the bullets and numbers from the document.
To switch between different bullet and number styles, click on ‘Format’ from the main menu bar and from the resulting menu, click on ‘Bullets and Numbering’. This will open the ‘Bullets and Numbering’ dialog box.
In this dialog box, under the ‘Bullets’ and ‘Numbering Type’ tabs, we have lists of different bullet and numbering styles. The required style can be chosen from these lists and after making all the changes, click on ‘OK’. This will save the changes to the document.
Add a box border and shading/background colour to a paragraph.
To add a box border to a paragraph, we need to use the same ‘Paragraph’ dialog box which we have been using in the previous sections. In this dialog box, under the ‘Borders’ tab, we have a ‘Line Arrangement’ field. In this field, we have 5 options for surrounding the paragraph with some kind of lines or boxes. Choose the second option among these and click on ‘OK’. This will add a complete box border to the paragraph.
To add a background colour, in the same ‘Paragraph’ dialog box, under the ‘Area’ tab, we have a ‘Fill’ drop-down list. Choose the required type of background from this list. Then choose the appropriate options for the style chosen and then click on ‘OK’. This will add the background to the paragraph.
