Running Microsoft Word 2000, I click on the Bullet icon in the taskbar, and the current line gets a bullet. I press and the cursor moves to the next line, which also has a bullet. I click on the Increase Indent icon, and the line, including the bullet, gets indented. I repeat this process and get several levels of indentation.
I want each indent level to be indented one-half inch more, to the right, than the preceding level. The problem I have is that the the second bulleted level is indented one inch from the first bulleted level. After that, the third and each subsequent level is indented one-half inch more than the preceding level.
I renamed Normal.dot and started Word. It created a new Normal.dot with this same behaviour. I used Format | Style to change the format of styles List Bullet, List Bullet 2, ..., to the format I want; I expected that clicking on the Bullets icon and the Increase Indent icon on the task bar would apply those styles, but it doesn't.
If I click on a line, and change the style (e.g. to List Bullet 3) using the Style drop-down on the task bar, then that style gets applied correctly, but I don't want to have to do that. I want each level to be indented correctly as I create the document, clicking the Increase Indent and Decrease Indent buttons as I go.
Can you tell me how to get this behaviour, or something close to it?
