    Next, we are going to open the menu for the number and bullet points.

    And here we have a menu.
    It is very useful to use bullets and numbers. It helps you create a more formal document and to highlight individual points or key things in a concise and well organized manner. As you can see here, we have a number of shapes. We have arrows, ticks and circles so these can be used if you desire.

    Next, we can go to Numbering type.
    This creates a system of numbers, letters and Roman Numerals and this one is a bit more formal if you are creating maybe a more detailed or complex document.

    If we click on Outline, this creates an even more complex document because it allows us to create sub-sections and a number of sub-topics okay?
    We can go from 1 to 1.1 then A, A1 and finally into bullet points. So this is very good for creating a complex document with lots of clauses and sub-sections.

    So, if we want to stay within the main section, the main field.
    So 1-2-3-4 are the main sections and obviously 1.1, 2.1 or 3.1 are sub-sections.

    So, to create them (sub-sections), we would need to use "Promote" and "Demote" which comes up in the box once you are already in the bullet points and numbering section okay?
