Publisher: Unexpected Bullet Order in Bullet Dialog Box

Publisher: Unexpected Bullet Order in Bullet Dialog Box

Q102420

-------------------------------------------------------------------
The information in this article applies to:

 - Microsoft Publisher version 2.0
-------------------------------------------------------------------

SYMPTOMS
========

When you modify bullets from the Indents And Lists dialog box for a
bulleted list in Publisher 2.0, the order in which the bullets appear
in the dialog box may appear to be incorrect.

MORE INFORMATION
================

The Indents And Lists dialog box in Publisher version 2.0 allows you
to choose from three types of indent settings: Normal, Bulleted List,
and Numbered List. When you select Bulleted List, the dialog box
displays six bullet characters, each of which may be modified by
choosing the New Bullet button. When you modify these bullets, the
order in which they are displayed may change. Specifically, the last
bullet changed will appear in position one (extreme left), and will
become the default bullet character. This change will only appear once
the Indents And Lists dialog box has been closed and reopened.

Steps to Reproduce Problem
--------------------------

1. Open or switch to Microsoft Publisher version 2.0 and start with a
   blank page.

2. Create a text frame and choose Indents And Lists from the Format
   menu.

3. Select Bulleted List and note the six default bullet characters.

4. Starting from the left, change each bullet to a number beginning
   with 1 (for example, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). In this example, the dialog
   box should now show the six bullets as numbers starting from 1 at
   the left and going to 6 on the right.

5. Choose the OK button to close the Indents And Lists dialog box and
   save your changes.

6. With the text frame still selected, choose Indents And Lists from
   the Format menu. Notice that the extreme left bullet is now a 6
   rather than a 1.
