Question: How do I make numbered or bulleted lists?


Numbered lists are appropriate when you are listing a set of steps, e.g, "How to do a science experiment." Bulleted lists are appropriate when you have a list of items in no particular order, e.g., "Supplies you'll need in class" or "Teacher's wishlist." We suggest using bulleted lists if you have a Downloads section and/or a Links section on your web page.

StepInstructionsExample or PictureNotes
1 Type the text that you want to use as a list, pressing return/enter between each item. Even a list of only one item can look nice with a bullet.
2 Highlight the lines that should have numbers or bullets. Items in the list can be plain text or can be hypertext links.

You can change them to links either before or after you give them numbers or bullets.
3 Click the numbered list icon or bullet list icon in the toolbar.

4 The text will now have numbers or bullets. If you change your mind, highlight the lines that have numbers or bullets, then click the icon again to remove the numbers or bullets.
