Default Bullet style problem

I have customized a bullet style structure with nine
levels and different bullet symbols for each. There are
two problems:
1. Typing twice the enter key does not allow me to return
to normal style as is usual for bullet lists. What I get
is the bullet style with the indent but without the
bullet. I have to manually return to normal.
2. While some bullets have been left to their original
size others have been customized to 16 pts or more. The
former change size according to that of the adjoining text
while the customized don't changed size any more even when
the text is enlarged considerably. Is there a way for them
to regain their link with the size of the adjoining text?
Thank you in advance for any advice

Set the 'Style for following paragraph'

Go to the Customize dialog. Select the level. Select Font. Clear the size.

1. Setting style for next paragraph as normal beats the
purpose of bulleted paragraphs: usually one wishes them to
continue for some lines to distinguish various topics or
points one is making.
2. Clearing the size of the font does not break the link
with the previously assigned font size, at least not on my
computer. I'm using Word 2002.

Agreed, but your previous post complained of the opposite. You can't have it
both ways: either you continue with the list style, or you return to normal.

Works for me. If the font is set to a specific size, the list uses it; if
blank, it uses the underlying paragraph font size. I'm just guessing about
W2002, but it works that way in W2000 and W2003.

1. Keep the bullet style as the "Style for following paragraph" then,
and use CTRL+SHIFT+N to apply the Normal style.

2. After you have modified the settings for the style, press CTRL+Q
for the paragraphs that don't behave; this should reset paragraph
formatting to style.

That's what I have been doing. I was hoping there was an

automatic way to set return to normal by clicking twice
enter, just as it is possible for other bulleted
paragraphs.

2. After you have modified the settings for the style,

press CTRL+Q
for the paragraphs that don't behave; this should reset

paragraph
formatting to style.

You can return to normal in standard bullet lists by
clicking twice Enter. My question from the start was if it
is possible to do so also for customized structured lists

Them perhaps it is just a problem on my computer and I'll

have to live with it till I upgrade. Anyhow I appreciate
you trying to help. Thanks

Why can't you use one of the provided solutions? Using a keyboard
shortcut is practical, and it's also very fast. Note that if you want
to apply a style that has no shortcut by default, you can define one
(in the Modify Style dialog box). Alternatively, you can change an
existing shortcut to one that you are comfortable with.
