TECH TIP OF THE MONTH Brought to you by Alandale Training a great resource online for tips and on-site computer training courses in Vancouver, BC. Visit their site at www.alandaletraining.com. The favorite tip of the month for ITS was this one: When you are creating a bulleted (or numbered) list in Word and you press Enter, Word automatically gives you a new line with another bullet (or number). But what do you do if you do not want the new line to have a bullet? For instance, you want your bulleted list to look like this: – First item – Second item – Third item – Fourth item The answer is to use Shift+Enter. In the example above, when you have keyed in Second item, press Shift+Enter. Word gives you a blank line without a bullet. Then press Enter; a bullet appears and you key in Third item. This is also useful if you want an item in the bulleted (or numbered) list to have several paragraphs. Keep using Shift+Enter to give you a new line, until you are ready for the next bullet and then press Enter.
