    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.

  5. 5
    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.

    Position, we can click. This can help us choose the position of the bullet points and where exactly we would like to position them in a document.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    We click on Options, then that gives us a number of options on style, on choosing the font and other like minded things okay?
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    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.

  10. 10
    Now, we are going to write a number of things. This is the first section.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    So, you have to press Tab to create sub-sections. So press Enter again.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Press Tab. Now we are going into "a)".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Press Enter again and press Tab. Now we are going to go into bullet points okay?
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    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?
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    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?
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
