What did you think of Shauna's site?
Shauna's site looked very useful (I found myself nosing around other
parts after looking into the bullets). The sections on bullets looked
clearly written, and not too complicated, but they were lengthy so I
didn't read them in detail yet. I'm reluctant to mess with styles as
I've never had much luck in my dabbling with them, but it seems I may
have to give in and learn a bit more.
I'm still stumped as to why my simple document is displaying different
only the two computers. I opened the doc on both computers, and
checked the font settings under Format>Style>Modify and both listed
Cambria. I think opened Font Book and both computers have Cambria
installed on them.
Yet only the computer that I originally created the document on will
display the bullets correctly.
Don't confuse the Style applied to the *text* in the list paragraph with the
Bullet character used. It doesn't have to be - and usually isn't - the same
font as the text you type. Instead, it may be Symbol, Wingdings, any other
glyph from any available font on the creator's system, or even a graphic of
some sort. If that glyph isn't available on the other system displaying the
doc a substitution has to be made or a non-character (such as a hollow box)
will be displayed instead.
