An Overview of Bullets
Sometimes people take little things like bullets for granted. Rather than be content with the traditional dots, circles, arrows, squares, and other shapes, users can be creative by designing new bullets that will become part of a design rather than just elements of another drab report or presentation.
Bullets are small markers that precede short, descriptive sentences or phrases. These marks can take various forms, but are usually recognizable as bold dots or other shapes that are normally chosen from a default list of bullets within word processing or desktop publishing programs.
When used with sub points, a bulleted list can look a lot like an outline, with sub points assuming a different look from primary points. Bullet points help organize a printed page and can also help inject brevity into Powerpoint slides.
Here, Microsoft Word 2010 is used to demonstrate to readers how to use an image as a bullet. This technique will add new life to otherwise boring lists and stir intrigue and admiration among clients and audiences.
