Add Number and Bullet Points in Open Office 4 on a MacBook Air
Thor, Sid Bedekar, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to add number and bullet points to a document in Open Office 4 when using a Macbook Air.
First thing you are going to need to do is open up the program as we have done here
Next, we are going to open the menu for the number and bullet points
We can do this by clicking on Format, scrolling down a little bit to Bullets and Numbering. Click on that.
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.
If we click on Graphics, we can change to some bullet points - more colourful - more relaxed, less serious and more fun bullet points
This can help us choose the position of the bullet points and where exactly we would like to position them in a document.
We click on Options, then that gives us a number of options on style, on choosing the font and other like minded things okay
So, we are going to go back to Outline
We are going to click the first option which is here. We are going to double click that or click "OK" to the selected option.
Now, we are going to write a number of things
This is the first section.
So, you have to press Tab to create sub-sections
So press Enter again.
Now we are going into "a)".
Press Enter again and press Tab
Now we are going to go into bullet points okay?
If we wanted to promote this, then we are going to go back to the main area which is 1
We are going to click "Demote: or "Promote" okay? We are going to promote it back to 2.
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
So, as you can see, we have created 1, 1.1, A
2, 2.1, A and 3 and so on. We can create an unlimited amount of sections and sub-sections okay?
