Learn how to edit a list and change the way it is aligned, adjusting the distance of the list numbers to the left margin, and the distance between the numbers and each listed item (for both bulleted and numbered lists).
- [Narrator] Let's talk about making modifications to a list here in Word and Office 365 and we'll do it with the list we created, the numbered list in our Tech Connect document, 0603 if you're catching up. We already know we can select everything on the list, and make modifications to the space we see between the left margin and the numbers as well as the space between the numbers and each listed item. And we can do that thanks to what we see here on the ruler, the different markers. If you're not seeing the ruler, remember click view and click the check box for ruler.
Well if you wanted to, you could move this closer to the left margin by clicking and dragging the first line indent marker. You can see it gets the numbers closer to the left margin but creates extra space between the numbers and the items. If you want all of those moved over you can go to this little triangle type hanging indent marker and drag it over to the left. Everything moves in to the left, and if you wanted to move both of these at the same time, you can go to the lower half where you see in this case, the left indent marker, clicking and dragging this will move the numbers and the items around together, maintaining that space between them.
But now what if you wanted the number one career in AI software engineers at the top, to appear, kind of all by itself with the others indented a little further? Well in that case you just select the items you want to adjust and you go to the lower half, that is our left indent, click and drag it over to the right and you can see the numbers come with it. Now if you want the numbers to stay just go to the top half, the hanging indent and drag those over.
Now all the numbers stay in line and everything below software engineers is slightly indented. That makes software engineers up here at the top stand out. So if you do need to make modifications the easiest way to do it is to use the markers that appear on the ruler. As for reordering and formatting, everything we've learned so far applies. For example, if we wanted to select everything and change the font face, the font, we can do it right here from the formatting toolbar that pops up like bolding for example.
Even though the numbers aren't selected they get bolded as well. You can go to the home tab if you wanted to and turn that off and maybe it's just the top one that should be bolded, you can select it and turn on bolding, Control B is your keyboard shortcut for that. Click in the background to deselect and you can see we've made some nice modifications to our list which is automatically numbered thanks to functionality built in to Word here in Office 365.
