    Bullet for one line bullets all lines (Word 2000)

    Very frustrating problem has cropped up where I bullet a line and it results in all lines in the document being bulleted. Has anyone seen similar? Thanks.

    Thoughts <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16> FWIW...Are you using the same style, e.g., Normal, throughout the document? Do you have Automatically update selected in the Format>Styles>Modify Styles display?

    Depending on the answers to those questions, you may want to consider using a different style for the bullets than you do for the other paragraphs in the document. and deselecting the Automatically update feature. HTH <img src=/S/compute.gif border=0 alt=compute width=40 height=20>

    Automatically Destroy Your Documents has been a royal pain. I never use it, but others here do and it seems that when I've edited their documents, I've picked up style changes I didn't want because of it. From what I can tell, the combination of AU and Based On Normal acts like a perpetual motion machine to continuously hammer styles. Having said that, the problem I'm running into is even after clearing AU and Based On for all styles, I still cannot avoid the problem of one bulleted line bulleting them all. I will try your bullet by style idea. Sounds like a good workaround. I'll let you know. Thanks.

    The Automatically update document styles is found under Tools/Templates & Add-ins. That's the one you want to deselect, too. You might also go to Tools/autocorrect/Autoformat as you type & deselect the options you don't want (probably most of them).
    Cheers,
