Default Bulleted list problems

I want to change the template for bulleted lists so that it puts them
every .25 instead of .5. When I change the style, the bullets move to
1/4", but the text indents stay at .5" How can I fix this?
Let me know if you have any ideas.

Thanks

Make sure you have set the hanging indent and tab position at the same
place; this must be done in the Bullets dialog, not the Paragraph dialog.

Default Bulleted list problems

I haven't used the paragraph dialog to format these. When I try to
customize the bullets it's grayed out. I was trying to set it up as a
style that I will automatically apply. The bullets add a tab marker to
the ruler in the wrong position. It's the "style bulleted" option
under styles and formatting. I have the tab stops set to .25" for the
document, but it's still messed up in my bulllets. I have a screenshot
of it that I can send to your email address if you'd like.

Instead of applying bullets to a style (using the Bullets button), apply a
style such as List Bullet and customize it using the Format | Bullets and
Numbering dialog. See

Actually, it looks like I've messed up a lot of my formatting somehow.
Now when I try and do bullets to a new document they automatically jump
to the middle of the page, etc. They don't start out at the margin
like usually. I need to restore my original template, and create a new
one that has a few specific font/heading styles, and regular bulleted
lists with .25" tabs/indents instead of the default .5" How can I fix
it for my default template and set up the new one?
