Learn how and when to convert bullets and numbering to text.
- [Instructor] In this last movie on lists,…I have some miscellaneous points…that I want to collect together.…Firstly, if you are using optical margin alignment,…I've already mentioned this before…but I'm going to mention it again.…So this is very useful for achieving…a very flush edge on the left and right hand side…of your text frame.…However, it doesn't play nicely with numbered lists.…So if I come and edit this numbered list,…the one that is finished,…and we look at indents and spacing,…you'll see that I'm ignoring the optical marginal alignment.…
If I choose to not ignore it,…then my numbers fall out of alignment.…The same is also true, but to a lesser extent,…with bullet lists.…Secondly, the number characters are auto-generated…and cannot be selected.…If you export to a rich text file,…then numbers are lost.…So if you need to export your text…or if, for whatever reason,…you need to select the numbers or the bullets,…you can convert them to text…and we can do this through the style definition…if we come to the paragraph styles panel.…
