### Bullet and numbering in latex

Not sure how you do it in latex. I tried googling it but the term "bullet and numbering" only applies for Microsoft Word. So the results I'm getting aren't very helpful. Not sure what you'd call it outside the context of MSWord.

What exactly do you want? Your post does not mention it.

I am assuming that you want to created bulleted lists and/or numbered lists. It is easily done by using the itemize or enumerate environments.

I am giving a minimal example for you to try.

\documentclass{article} \begin{document} \begin{itemize}   \item Some text   \item Some more text   \item blah, blah.\end{itemize} \begin{enumerate}  \item Some text   \item Some more text   \item blah, blah.\end{enumerate} \end{document}

If that is not what you wanted, please provide more details.

Then please mark the topic (not the last post) accordingly as written in Section 3 of the Board Rules (to be read before posting). This also applies to your former question [1]. Please keep that in if for the future so that further reminders will not be necessary.
