    Left to Right typing and Bullets (Word 2003)

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Loungers

    In Left to Right typing, say such as Arabic, when I apply a bullet style, the bullets go on the left and not the right, how can I change that?

    In Latin typing the text starts on the left, but in Arabic it starts on the right and goes left and then down.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Don't you mean right-to-left typing? Left-to-right is used in western languages.

    When I have used right-to-left languages, the bullets have been on the right side, just as you would expect.
    Can you check that your entire Paragraph is formatted r-t-l as it is possible to have a mixed paragraph and this could account for what you are seeing.
