I have a numbered list such as this:
- Item 1
- Item 2
- Item 3
I would like to typeset the "2." in bold as well. Is this possible in Word 2010?
If you look carefully, you can see an additional "fake space" at the end of every line of the numbered list. This space is only visible if you highlight it by dragging the mouse over it. For example, the actual characters in your text are the following (except the quotes):
But if you drag the mouse in the space just behind the last character on the line, you will see a space, represented by the
Drag over that space and select Bold or any other formatting and it should only apply to the number on the same line as the space. Note that you can't "reach" this character by pressing the left and right arrow keys on the keyboard, but that the answer by Creator is another way of getting to it (but his way makes you bold the entire line; with my solution, you can bold only the number).
Important additional info from the OP:
It's possible, just put the cursor anywhere in the item 2 and follow these keys.
It'll make the complete line with the bullet no. bold.
