First of all, select the paragraphs you wish to change and then simply click on the bulleted list to create bullets or the numbered list to create numbers. If you want to change the parameters of your bullets, go to type, paragraph then navigate through the options to bullets and numbering.

To add a bullet click the type in the beginning of your font name. Navigate to the type of bullet you want and click add. Go OK. And there you have an additional bullet, click OK. And you see the bullets have now changed. To create a numbered list is equally as easy, up in the context menu, click numbered list while your text is selected.

Its possible to add different levels of numbering. One, one point one, one point one one etc, which we’ll cover in another tutorial.
