Stop Word from auto cap first letter after bullet only

Q: Stop Word from auto cap first letter after bullet only

i like that Microsoft Word 2003 auto-corrects the first letter of a sentence after a period. However, i want it to stop making that same auto-correction after a bullet, in a list. I went to the auto-correct options, and there are only checkboxes for "capital first letter of sentences" and "capital first letter of table cells". there is no option for "bullets."

there is an "exceptions" box where you can tell Word not to capitalize the first word after whatever you want, but i dont know what to input to make it know im talking about symbols in a list.

any help, please!

My wife is an author and is trying to use Word (365) dictation. Whilst it works fine when she is speaking, when she stops to think for a few seconds the dictation system switches off. There must be a setting somewhere that defines this time interval. Does anyone know where it is in Windows 10? Ideally she would want no auto off at all. Searching the web yields nothing but since I do not know what term to look for it is perhaps not surprising.

Thanks for reading and for any ideas you may have.

Hi I'm having trouble preventing Word 2013 from automatically formatting a document. I have defined a multi level list associated with the headings style. If I have a line of text that has a number at the beginning of the line, word will automatically apply the heading style that corresponds with the number when instead I just want to create a bulletted list. The little auto format lightning bolt drop down does not appear at all. I have turned off every possible auto format and auto correct option there is, but word is still changing the format. Any help would be appreciated.


1 heading one
1.1 sub paragraph
2 each


1 heading one
1.1 sub paragraph
? each

A:Word 2013 can't stop auto format of heading multi level list

I don't use Word much these days, but having a look through my Word 2013, I see you might be able to make changes. With Word open select Design from the top menu & over on the RH side is Paragraph Spacing, click on that & from the drop down menu select Custom Paragraph Spacing.
This will open a selection of tabs you can use to change your document settings.
Click on Edit & scroll down to find one that says List Bullets. You can also select New Style & this will give you a lot more options that you can change.
Also note down at the bottom there is an option to select for This Document Only or for all Documents based on this Template.

I have not tried any of these options, but give it a try & see how you go. If you regularly want to us this style you can save it as a template as a basis for future documents.

I'm using Word 2000 with Windows XP. When I try and use a dotted bullet it prints as a different symbol albeit ok in Print Preview. I have tried going into Format, Bullets, confirming the 'dot' and trying again but the different symbol stubbornly remains.

This is strange. I am editing my resume and have to put bullets in the middle of a sentence. I can't get the right bullet size from the default bullets in Insert>symbols to match the bullet size I am using in my document. I can't copy the bullets directly from the document or if there is a way to do that, I can't figure it out. It appears the bullets in my Word document are in between the two sizes I can find in the Symbols applet from the Insert menu.

A:Can't get right bullet size in Word 2016

I don't know if this is what you are looking for but after inserting your bullet symbol highlight it by left click and dragging the cursor over the bullet. Right click and select font and increase the font size. Hit the space bar and then right click to set your font size back to your default size.

I am having problems with my bullets in word - I run Word 2007 on Vista. When I start a new bullet, it works fine however the second time a start a bullet in a document, it automatically shifts to double line spacing. It does this on both my home and work computer. I can manually fix it, but it's very frustrating and takes time. I just want a simple standard bullet on each line, with single line spacing. What am I doing wrong?

A:Bullet formatting in Word 2007 Vista

Read other 14 answers


I am editing/formatting a document in Word 2007 (though it's being saved as a .doc 2003-compatible format for our client). There is a style called "Bullet" that is used for the bullets throughout the document. There are second-level bullets also throughout the document. Currently, they are also styled with "Bullet," but have been set to show up as second-level bullets. I want to create a new style for these bullets in case something happens to the main "Bullet" style, or we need to make a mass-change to the second-level bullets.

Normally, to do this, I would simply put my cursor on one of the second-level bullets and create a new style (we'll call it "Bullet 2") based off of my selection. When I do this, it creates the style in the style list, but it automatically reverts my selection to "Normal." If I re-select it and apply "Bullet 2" to the text again, it will not work. If I select another area of random text in the document and try to style it as "Bullet 2," it also reverts to Normal.

I've tried to clear all styles on the line and then style it as "Bullet 2," but that doesn't work, either.

I've looked all around in the Modify style area for clues, but everything looks fine. I've looked in the advanced compatibility options of word and I found something that says "Use normal style for bulleted or numbered lists," but checking/unchecking it doesn... Read more

I'm needing to use the Unicode Character U+1F44A "Fisted Hand Sign" as a bullet.

Word uses the font "Segoe UI" to display this font, going by Internet Searches both Times New Roman and Ariel (sp) have this symbol. I cannot find this symbol using Windows 8 Character Map*. I cannot find a way to find this character, and still, I really need to use this symbol as a Bullet Point.

Inside of word Using Alt + X confirms the symbol code 1F44A, and still I cannot find a way to use this symbol. Is there a limit, why? Have I missed something? Any help greatly welcome.

Character Map:
Have tried doing an advance search for "Fist"
Have tried the Unicode 1f44a - which results in an error after typing four characters

A:Word 2010, Custom Bullet List, Unicode 1F44A

Found it.

Open the Character Map (Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Character Map) then select Segoe UI Symbol from the Font drop list. The fist symbol is about half way down the scroll list of symbols.

If you need instructions on how to add that symbol to your Word bullet style list just let me know.

If you do not have the Segoe UI Symbol character set see this link:

Is there a way to force all documents sent to the printer to be printed on the A4 paper rather than the printer asking for US letter size.

I have asked the xerox printer supplier for help, they have configured the printer to do as i ask, but it is being over ruled somewhere along the process. I have told all staff to select A4 as the default paper size both in the word application and in the printer properties tab. I'm not sure what else to do, I have heard mention of doing something with the printer drivers on the server, but am afraid that is a bit beyond my abilities, I am happy to google and give things a go, but I do not have full admin rights where I work and would have to be confident that what I am trying, will work; and be able to fully explain it to the computer illiterates that do have full admin rights.

I've bought three WD 3Tb Elements external USB 3 drives (they were on special). The problem is that Windows 7 is not seeing them as separate drives. If you plug in one then the next one simply doesn't appear, either in My Computer or in the Disk Management utility.

This has happened to me before (with two identical 2Tb WD Elements drives) but I was able to fix the problem by manually assigning drive letters to each one. Once I did that they were recognized as separate drives. Unfortunately this doesn't seem to be working with these ones.

I plug in drive #1 and assign it the drive letter S.
I then unplug it and plug in drive #2. It appears also as drive S (this is what normally happens).
I manually assign this second disk the drive letter T.
What SHOULD happen at this point is that when I now plug in the first drive again it will still have drive letter S and the two will both show. Instead only one of them will register at a time and they both now (separately) show as T. Both in My Computer and in Disk Management the second is simply invisible.

Any ideas? How do I make the drive letters 'stick' to their drives as I've been able to with other similar drives in the past?

A:How do I stop identical WD USB drives showing as the same drive letter

This happens because all the three drives have the same Unique Id.

Connect all the three drives and go to Windows Disk Management.

Only one drive will get the drive letter and the other two may be offline because of the signature collision.

Right click on the drives with a red arrow pointing down and bring them online.

Plug out the drives and plug in. Now all the drives will get a different drive letter.

EDIT: You may also check and change the Unique ID of the drives using diskpart. http://www.laurentkempe.com/post/Win...collision.aspx

Gmail Stopping Signature Snipping Please Help!

I am relatively new to VBA so please bare with me.

The company I work for has multiple business divisions and each business has multiple branch locations.

The letter template needs to allow the user to select their business division in a combobox in a userform which will populate that field in a table in the footer.

I then need to populate the address and contact details, also contained in a table in the footer. I would like this information to be pulled from an excel spreadsheet which will allow for updates by administrators who may have very basic level knowledge of Word. The other option, I believe, is to use docvariables, but I am unsure of how they work. I can only assume that the information is manually entered into the userform and that the document remembers the information?
