Using QuickBullets

I use lists in all sorts of documents. They're easier to follow than long, drawn-out explanations, so readers really appreciate them. WordPerfect's QuickBullets feature makes it easy for you to create a bulleted list on-the-fly. Simply type a symbol, and then press Tab—WordPerfect converts the symbol to a bullet. Table 3.1 lists the QuickBullets symbols.

Inserting QuickBullets is easy when you use the following steps:

  1. Choose the Tools menu and select QuickCorrect, Format-As-You-Go. If necessary, place a check mark next to the QuickBullets option.
  2. Type one of the QuickBullets symbols, and then press Tab. As soon as you press Tab, WordPerfect converts the symbol to a bullet.
  3. Type the text, and then press Enter. Notice that you automatically get another bullet when you press Enter (see Figure 3.7).

    Figure 3.7 You can use the QuickBullets feature to create bulleted lists with just one or two keystrokes.

  4. When you are finished with the list, press Enter and then backspace to delete the bullet.

Table 3.1 lists the six bullet symbols you can create with symbols on the keyboard. You can also refer to the help topic on this for a quick reminder.
