Video: Using the improved bulleted lists

If you like to work with bulleted lists in OneNote, you'll be very happy about a minor improvement that was made here in OneNote 2010, involving the first level bullets. Now when you create a bulleted list, indents will match previous text automatically. So your bullets will always be lined up nicely. Let's test this out with our AGM 2010 Notebook. We're in the Event Planning section. Under the Facility page, we've selected the Room Setup. Here we have a note that starts off with some items that are bulleted. Then down below, we have another heading and additional items that should also be bulleted.

Using the improved bulleted lists

If you like to work with bulleted lists in OneNote, you'll be very happy about a minor improvement that was made here in OneNote 2010, involving the first level bullets. Now when you create a bulleted list, indents will match previous text automatically. So your bullets will always be lined up nicely. Let's test this out with our AGM 2010 Notebook. We're in the Event Planning section. Under the Facility page, we've selected the Room Setup. Here we have a note that starts off with some items that are bulleted. Then down below, we have another heading and additional items that should also be bulleted.

So we're going to select those items by clicking and dragging. Once we've got our four items selected, we can turn the bullets on a couple of different ways. One option is from the Basic Text section, or a group on the Home tab of the Ribbon, or whenever you select content now you'll notice these mni toolbars showing up, as you move up and over to the right. On the mini toolbar, we do have a Bullets button. So when we select this, look what happens. All of the items line up perfectly with the items that appear a little further up in the note, and the bullets are exactly the same.

So this is a minor improvement that was very highly requested that's going to save you a lot of hassles when trying to line up your bulleted items. As we go over to the other note involving Kits, we can select each of those items as well. Once we've got them selected, this time let's go to the Basic Text group on the Home tab of the Ribbon, and select the Bullets button there. Notice it's the same bullets and the same indent that's applied to this separate note. Now we're going to select some sub- items, the Agenda down to the end of Notepaper, and we should increase the indent for that.

They're really sub-items of Documentation. So we can do that from the Basic group here on the Ribbon as well. Increase Indent Position and you can see the default bullets are applied. Everything lines up nicely. So once again, although it's a very minor improvement, it was highly requested. It's going to save you some time when trying to line up items in bulleted list that appear in the note.
