In this video we show you How to Make, Format and Auto-number Multi level list in Microsoft Word 2013-2016.
Just follow the steps shown in this video tutorial.
Most of the list making tricks and tips lie within the Ribbon’s Paragraph group on the Home tab. Select the text to which you want to add the numbered list and click the downward arrows next to the Bullet Lists icon or the Numbered List icon to access the libraries for both. Preview each list format by hovering over the selections available.
Microsoft Word also automatically creates a list for you when you start a paragraph with an asterisk or a number 1. With an asterisk, Word creates a bulleted list. With a number, Word senses that you are trying to create a numbered list.
If you don’t want your text turned into a list, you can click the AutoCorrect options button image that appears.
To quickly change the style of a bulleted or numbered list, just click the style you want in the list that appears when you click the arrow next to Bullets or Numbering.
General Tip: You can change the format of just one or some of the bullet or number styles in a list. Place the cursor at the start of the line that you want to change before opening the Bullets and Numbering dialog box. Your changes will apply only to the selected lines.
Productivity gurus loathe the mouse. Use a handy Microsoft Office shortcut to create numbered lists quickly with the keyboard alone.

You can change, edit, or create a new numbered list as you want. You have four Numbered List formats to choose from. But what if you want to use your own format other than the letters or Roman numerals and it’s not available? Go ahead and create your own in a few easy steps.
Go to Home - Paragraph group - Numbering. Click the down arrow. Choose Define New Number Format.
Choose any chronological format. To change the font size, style, and color, click Font and choose a setting on the Font tab or Advanced tab.
When you want to add a dash, parentheses, or another value like a pound sign to the number, enter it in the Number format field. The little preview displays the changes. In the screenshot below, I have added two square brackets for a list you can tick-off.
To change the number alignment, choose Left, Centered, or Right under Alignment. The default is Left-Aligned.
Click OK. The new number format is applied to any selected text on your document.
Just like the numbered list, you can also change the default look of any bulleted list. Visually appealing bullets (other than the boring black solid dots) help your documents stand out from the mundane.
