    Bullets and Numbering Issues

    Hi all!
    I have created two different custom bullet styles and numbering styles contained in a .dotm template. When used, the style settings are applied, however, the actual bullet object (e.g, the hollow bullet, the dash, etc.) graphic does not show on some documents in MS Word 2013. Does anyone know why this may be occurring, and a way to fix it?

    Thank you!
    Danielle

    You might get more responses if this had been posted in the Word section of the forum, maybe ask a moderator to move it.

    I do not know, but here is a resource from Shauna Kelly that might be helpful.

    Numbered lists often get 'damaged' and IMO you need macros to be able to quickly sort out the issue. Fortunately, you can record a macro very easily by doing the following steps.
    1. Open a document where the list displays the way you want it to and place your cursor in a level 1 bullet paragraph
    2. Turn on the macro recorder
    3. On the home tab, click on the Multilevel List dropdown button and choose Define New Multilevel List...
    4. Close the dialog and stop the macro recording.

    If you view the macro, you will see that simply opening that dialog records a huge amount of information about nine list levels. This macro can then be run in a document that is having problems and this will configure the list correctly in that document.
