What are Bullet Points?

Bullet points are a text formatting tool that allows you to indent your paragraphs and add a table of contents. They’re commonly used in articles and reports but can also be used in any text-based document.

Bullet points are created by starting a new paragraph and indenting it two levels from the paragraph preceding it. The first line of the new paragraph should be a heading that identifies the bullet point. The remaining lines of the bullet point should be indented two levels from the heading. The indentation is optional but is used to help the reader find the bullet point.

To create a table of contents, simply indent the first line of a new paragraph two levels from the paragraph preceding it and add a tagline at the beginning of the new paragraph that identifies the category the information belongs to. The information within the paragraph should be listed in the same indentation as the tagline.
