    I have two different bullet point lists, both next to one another at roughly the same vertical height on the page. The left-hand list I want to be in black, and the right-hand list I want to be in blue, and somewhat larger. The problem I am encountering is that the 1st bullet point for this right-hand list is black and smaller font, and attempts to change it also affect the left-hand list. I notice when I highlight the top bullet point of either list, that both lists are highlighted. I tried "separate list" option on the left-hand list but that only changed the font. Can someone advise as to how I can enforce different bullet point styles for each list? If there's a meta setting that allows me to tell Word not to lump numbering and bullet lists together in terms of styles settings, that would be very helpful.

    Thanks.

    Make separate bulleted paragraph styles.

    You should use two different styles, each with a different list template.

    See Ins and outs of bullets and numbering in Word for a list of very useful links about bullets and numbering.
