mac user here. on macs, you type a bullet by simple holding apple and the 8 key, i think. what is the keystroke on a PC?

can you do it by insert -> symbol -> "click on bullet"?

you're referring to Word right? well i guess. thing is, when i copy/paste that bullet into Illustrator, it turns out to be a bullet w/some edges around it, not a clean bullet. agh.

Illustrator as in Adobe Illustrator? Is Anti-Aliasing enabled to smooth out rough edges?

haven't checked. i simply need to use a bullet point as a character, instead of having to manually create it (using the circle tool in adobe illustrator). thus, when i'm editing text, the bullet moves along w/it...confused? sorry...

So, what does this do to your computer. I am smart enough to NOT do it so I don't blow up the computer.

I bet it erases all traces of SU from your computer so you can never get back to it, doesn't it!

Or, does it erase files and memory on your PC?

Or, does it erase your computer from the desk?

Or, does it erase my computer from my memory?

Or, does it erase my memory?

types in alt+option+F9+F4+m+rightclick+q.

Or, ........I can't remember what I was doing or what this ^ all means,

alt+F4 terminates your current application.

if anyone actually tried that... :hee:

Who cares how many strokes it takes on a PC? That's what charmap.exe is for, anyways... I've never, EVER had to use a bullet point, except when it was already provided on the form. It's pretty easy to access the option from any word processor, anyways. Besides, PC's aren't for lazy artists, schools, or word processing.

(I'm kididng about that last part. All schools should have PC's, for word processing.)

[lol, kidding again.]

use the character map.

start --> programs --> accessories --> system tools

scroll down and find the bullet and copy it.

You probably have a numpad superimposed onto your regular keys. Look for a different color of writing or something... for instance, Numpad 4 is on my U key, 5 on I, 6 on O, etc. You have to press Num Lock on my IBM to get the numbers to work, and on my Dell you have to hold down Fn while you press them. It's much easier to use Start> Programs> Accessories> Character Map and just copy and paste what you need. Or buy a Mac.

Michelle, I don't think it's any mystery anymore that you could post on the dynamics of a rolling dust ball and the thread will span the many pages born of competition and hope :-) My, my woman, you shake the very ground that you float across . . . have mercy?

Yeah I brought it back. This thread is ultra old, but I was trying to do a bullet earlier via the alt 0149 method. However it wouldn't work. I'm thinking that this may be because my laptop doesn't have a number pad. I held down the function key, which turns certain keys into the # pad, while doing the command though it didn't work. Anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this?

Turn on the number pad on the laptop... Hold down the ALT key, and type the numbers as you're holding down ALT. After you type the number, let go of ALT and it should appear. You must you the number pad though, not the numbers at the top of the keyboard.

You can also just cut and paste from the above pages.

Haha. I love SU. I forgot this thing had number lock. Thanks again. That ASCII chart is good reference too.
