    Default bullet settings/auto correct (Word 2003)

    When typing "* some text" the default setting in Word is to autocorrect this into a bulleted list and I am fine with that. However, it defaults to a .25" indent and a .5" tab stop. Is there a way to change this behavior?

    I'd avoid the autocorrect and use the list bullet styles. See Microsoft Word Help FAQ. How to control bullets in Microsoft Word.

    I agree with you. I don't generally use the autocorrect either. However, some of my users really like it except for the one annoyance of having the bullet indented.

    The behavior of the Bullets button is unpredictable, that's why 99% of all discussions about this subject contain a recommendation to use styles instead.
