Windows 7: Bullet Point Problems

Bullet Point Problems

I have a major issue with Office 2007. Whenever I add bullet points to a document, it indents OUTSIDE the normal text.



So everytime I create a new set of bullet points I have to do this:

Select the bullet points > Right Click > Click Paragraph > Set 'Special' from 'Hanging' to 'First Line'

Does anyone know how to force the Office 2007 bullet points to properly indent ALL the time?

This could be a template problem. To delete the existing default document template, you can follow the steps specified at How to troubleshoot problems that occur when you start or use Word 2010, Word 2007, Word 2003, or Word 2002:

"To rename the global template file, follow these steps:
  1. Exit all Office programs.
  2. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
  3. Type the following command, as appropriate for the version of Word that you are running, and then press ENTER:
    • Word 2002 and Word 2003: ren %userprofile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\Normal.dot OldNormal.dot
    • Word 2007 and Word 2010:ren %userprofile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\Normal.dotm OldNormal.dotm
  4. Type exit, and then press ENTER.
  5. Start Word.
If Word starts correctly, you have resolved the problem. In this case, the problem is a damaged global template file. You may have to change several settings to restore your favorite options"

Thank you! That resolved the problem. And sorry for the long delay in reply, I've been busy with a bunch of exams lately (they're all over now though.)
