Cannot get to the bullet I want....

Cannot get to the bullet I want....

First, thank you for your help.

Question: I am looking to put a different bullet than the small round one. I click+hold down alt key on the bulleted list icon in Indesign CS4 and get the "bullets and numbering" options box. I then choose 'add' and pick a different bullet from the wingdings options (say it's an arrow). I chose it but when applying it, it still shows up a the small round bullet.

Thank you.


RE: Cannot get to the bullet I want....

ok not to worrry. I got it after digging around.

(1)get the bullet and numbering window by pressing alt+bullet icon on upper right taskbar
(2)add bullet by going through the different font
(3)highlight bullet and press ok
(4)highlight text, and press bullet icon and the choosen bullet will show up.

yes, i know. Seems common sense, except earlier I didn't have any!
