I'm experiencing a strange error that I am not familiar with.

  • Can auto create bullet list with *
  • Indenting and un-indenting with TAB works
  • Automatic bulleted lists is selected in AutoCorrect options
  • Performing a Repair of Microsoft office in Programs and Features does nothing

For those who run into this in the future try forcing Word to rebuild the default style.

  • Go to C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates
  • Change the name of the Normal.dotm (deleting it shouldn't cause problems) then open a new word document.

Word will rebuild the default styles and should resolve the problem... probably ;)

  • Do you get the same behavior with bulletin lists created by clicking the button on the file tab?

The bulleted lists are probably saved as a Style that specifies the following paragraph is formatted as "Normal" or a non-bulleted paragraph style.

Find the list in the Style gallery, right click, select modify, and check the drop-down menu for "Style for the following paragraph."

  • -_- Thanks for the follow up. Totally brain farted on this.
