    Your screenshot shows 2 (two) paragraphs, and both have a bullet. Each paragraph contains several line breaks that force text to begin on a new line without starting a new paragraph.

    So what exactly do you want to know?

    Re: Distinguish between two para with same style (All)

    My apologies. Distinguish betweet the para starting with a bullet and the standard paras following it. Oh! I get it. It is actually one para with new lines only. OK. No worries. I will look bit more into it then.

    Perhaps, I shouldn't have attached the sample. Anyway, thinking about it (going back to my original question) how would we distinguish two para - one with bullet and one without? I can't see anything in terms of the style. For example,

    Para1 alsdjasldj asldkjasl daslkdj alsjdlasdjaskldjklasd
    [Bullet]Para2 ,xmcxcm,vn xncv,xcnv ,xmn v,xcmvnx,vnxc,mvnxm,cvn x,nv,xcnv
    ParaX asldjasldjkaskldjas djkals dlkasjd laskjd aslkdjalsdjalsdj askldjlaskdj
    [Bullet]Paray askldjlaksjdas daskldjaskldjas dklasdjlaskdjlaskdjklasjdklasdjl
    Thanks.

    If you have a variable rng of type Range (it could be the current selection, or a specific paragraph), you can inspect its ListFormat.ListTemplate property:

    If rng.ListFormat.ListTemplate Is Nothing Then
    ' No bullets or numbering
    Else
    ' Bullets or numbering
    End If

    You can also look at the ListParagraphs collection:

    If rng.ListParagraphs.Count = 0 Then
    ' No bullets or numbering
    Else
    ' Bullets or numbering
    End If

    Re: Distinguish between two para with same style (All)

    If the question is “how can I tell which of these TWO paragraphs has a bullet character typed as the first character, and which is auto-bulleted,” rather than “which of these TWO THOUSAND paragraphs,” there are two easy indicators:

    1) On the Formatting toolbar, a button is provided (by default in that toolbar, I think) that can be pressed to “bullet” a paragraph, and when the cursor is resting in such a bulleted paragraph, the button bears its “depressed” look, but if the bullet has been manually inserted, the button looks non-depressed (hmm, what would Freud say?).

    2) Pressing Shift-F1 opens the “Reveal Formatting” sidebar, and, with the cursor in any paragraph, such things as font and language and bullets or no bullets are spelled out in the sidebar (not sure "sidebar" is correct name for this info box that is docked on the right side, sorry).

    Another idea, very visual:

    3) To globally “mark” every bullet character that has been hard-typed in, you could copy and insert that bullet character into EDIT-FIND, and also on-check the “Highlight all items found in” checkbox just below the “Find what” box. Then pressing “Find All” will temporarily highlight all of the manual bullets in the doc.
