Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding bullets and numbers, part of Learning InDesign (2011).
In this exercise, I'm going to show you how to automate the creation of bulleted…and numbered lists inside InDesign.…Notice that I'm looking at page 4 of the document.…I'm going to double-click inside this text block in the right-hand column, and…then I'll drag across portions of all of the paragraphs, except for the very top…paragraph, which ostensibly introduces the list, as well as the headline above it.…Then go up to the control panel and switch from the Character Formatting…controls to the Paragraph Formatting controls, because this is a paragraph-level…formatting attribute.…
And then notice you have a couple of icons at your disposal midway in.…One is Bulleted List, and the others Numbered List, and really, all you have to do…is click on one of these icons. For example,…if you click on Bulleted List, then you'll automatically assign bullets to all…the selected paragraphs, and then if you decide later you don't want a bulleted…list then all you have to do is click on that icon again to turn it off.…
