I have created a list in MS Word, but when I try to justify the text of each line, it's not working.

How can I justify text in a list in MS word?

Does each bullet point span multiple lines? If it's just one or two words per bullet point it won't justify. This is also true for regular paragraphs. – Windos Aug 23 '11 at 9:54
Yes, it does span multiple line. – Shamim Hafiz Aug 23 '11 at 9:56
Can you add a screenshot? (Use dummy text that mimics what your document looks like or otherwise obscure it if you wish.) – Windos Aug 23 '11 at 10:00

In order to justify text, list or not) it needs to wrap to a second line. Please see the included screenshot for a demonstration.

The other answers didn't quite work out the way I wanted it to. I had to resort to creating a new Doc and retype older contents.
