Is it possible to set Bullets and Numbering so that there is a double space rather than a single space from one item to the next; and, if so, how?

Thanks

I'm not sure if it's the right way or the best way, but I stumpled across this:

When you have your number 1 item completed, hit enter. Then, hit enter again, and you'll be taken to your left margin. Hit enter again, and you'll have your double space. THEN click on Bullers & Numbering again (I have the icon right on my toolbar), and your "2" will appear, and all the items after that should follow suit -- i.e. all the items should be double-spaced.

Try that and see if it works with your version.

If you do it that way you are creating a lot more work for
yourself than is necessary. See
http://www.yqcomputer.com/
html for some valuable help with this. I cannot urge you
strongly enough to take the time to learn about styles (as
Word uses the term).
Here is a quick fix that will probably work for a simple
list. Click the down arrow in the Style box on the
toolbar (it is probably to the left of the Font box).
Select List Bullet (if it is not there, press Shift while
clicking the down arrow). Click List Bullet, and try
typing a bulleted list (or select a list, then click List
Bullet). If it looks OK, you're all set. If it doesn't,
click Format > Style > Modify > Format > Paragraph, and
set the Space After to 12 pts. Make other adjustments to
bullet, font, indent, etc. in the same way. This is the
route in Word 2000. I couldn't say for sure about other
versions, but it is similar, I believe.
If List Bullet is not on the Styles drop-down list, click
the Bullets icon, then Format > Paragraph, and set Space
After to 12 pts. With the cursor still in the paragraph,
click into the Styles box, type Custom Bullets (or
whatever), and press Enter.
Do not press the Enter key to create space between lines.
Really. A word processor is not a typewriter. It will
work much better for you if you stop thinking in
typewriter terms. Let it do the grunt work.
There is a lot more to using styles than I can explain
here. See the link above to get yourself started.

This is handled by paragraph formatting. Add some Space Before or After to
the paragraph style.

There is a real simple way to approach this problem. First, when you are in the word document, go to the tab on the top of the document that says "Format" and click on it. Then, scroll down with the mouse to paragraph and click on that. This will bring you to the indents and spacing option tab. Look down to the line spacing which probably says "single". You want to change that to double and click "ok". Finally you can click on bullets and numbering and you can begin typing. Then, when you are ready to start a new bullet, enter and it will automatically double space for you

Good Luck!!

Hi Kristen,

Except that every line will be double-spaced, even the lines within the same
paragraph. So, for example, if the second item in the list runs on three
lines, it will take up six lines... IMHO, it is much better to use "Space
after" for what she wants, as Suzanne suggested.

Format | Bullets & Numbering | Numbering | Restart numbering. I hope this has
been helpful to you.

The thing is that I am unable to click the restart bulleting due to the fact
that it is greyish!

Hi Deborah-

When you go into the Bullets & Numbering dialog box and select a preset
which is the same style as one previously used in the doc, the 'continue' &
'restart' options become active.

Hi,

I'm using Word 2003, I know I can customize Bullets and Numberings but what
I cannot seem to be able to do is create a combination of the two.

For Example:
The body text will have...
Yadda Yadda Yadda* Yadda Yadda. Madda Madda** Madda.

Then at the end of the document...
* Ref 1:
** Ref 2:
*** Ref 3:

As shown above, I'd like to have a character, the *, and the numbers to both
increase incrementally for each new bulleted section.

I'm sure I'm going to be told it's not possible but I would think that with
some sort of coding it could be.

Thanks Very Much In Advance,
Rob

I _think_ that what you want to do is to insert Endnotes. If you want
the Endnote references in the text to just be ever-increasing numbers
of asterisks (or bullet characters), then choose "Custom" markers in
the endnote-formatting panel that shows up when you do Insert |
Reference | Footnote, and type only a single asterisk (or bullet, or
whatever) in the box. (You can restart the sequence on every page; if
you don't do that, and you have, say, 20 references, there are going
to be an awful lot of asterisks on the last page.)

You can then format your Endnote Text style with Numbering, and type
Ref. in the box for the format of the Numbering number. (IIRC you get
that box when you use Outline Numbering but not when you do plain
Numbering, so just use Outline Numbering that has only one level. Be
sure to click "More" and associate Level 1 with Endnote Text style.)

Ahhhh, insert endnotes. Now that I have not tried before. BTW, it was my
intension to change the caracter (*) to yet another one ( then ( when it
became more than 5 consecutively. Luckly I'll only have, at most, 8 Refs that
I'm trying to do.

Hey, Thanks sooooo much, I totally didn't think about endnotes.
