Re: Changing the Size of Bullets in a List

Philip, I followed your first example, and it worked. As you said, it only "takes" once you move the cursor to a different field of the list settings. I was able to make the change, save the document, and have the changed bullet appear when I opened the saved document. I'll try the style menu when I...

Again, many thanks, Philip.

Re: Changing the Size of Bullets in a List

Many thanks for your suggestions, but I have to plead ignorance. How can I insert a different character into the bullet definition? I tried adding a bullet to the bullet list, but that didn't work. I tried replacing one of the bullets in the list with a small box, and that kind of worked, but it rev...

Changing the Size of Bullets in a List

I just created a list with an empty box as my bullet, which I want. However, the box is way too big for a bullet.

I want to change the bullet to a smaller font than the text.

How can I do that? Tried several ways, none of them worked.

Re: Another Capitalization Question

Thanks, but I want to do it by an exact amount of space by percentage — like line spacing.

Is there a way to do that?

Re: Stationery Templates: Re-Post: Dublin and Capital Templ

I recently learned that an elegant version of the Dublin template can be produced from the Luxury and Luxury Text font families by Christian Schwartz.

Another Capitalization Question

I need to use small caps and all caps in a document I am preparing. Is there any way to add additional space between the characters (such as make the character spacing 125?)?

if so, I can't find it listed in the documentation.

If not, shouldn't there be a way to do this?

Many thanks,

Bill

Stationery Template: Initials

Attached in ZRTF format, using Hoefler Text, is my template for stationery that highlights one's initials as a logo. The initials are in a box that is really a 1X1 table. Note that the address, phone number, and e-mail address below the box are in small caps. I had trouble getting the initials cente...

Stationery Template: Milano

Attached in ZRTF format is my adaptation of Pages's Milano template for NWP using Helvetica Neue. I would use this template for sans serif fonts only, but you could — and I have — change the size and spacing to fit the font you are using. I particularly like this template in Calluna Sans, Helvetica ...

Stationery Templates: Classic, Formal, and Traditional

Attached are NWP templates for my Classic, Formal, and Traditional stationery in Hoefler Text. None of these are earth-shaking in their originality, but they work. In the Traditional template, the underlined heading is in Small Caps. Again, thanks and a tip of the hat go to Pages and Word from whenc...

Stationery Templates: Personal and Forefront

Attached are my Personal and Forefront templates for Nisus stationery. I used fonts that came with my MacBook Pro — Hoefler Text and Avenir — so I hope everyone can read them. In the personal stationery, I would normally use Bold instead of Black for the name (the first line in the text box), but Ho...

Tables Not Working As They Should

I am finding that the vertical spacing in table cells is not working as it should. Sometimes the data are centered when I click the center button, most of the time they are not. Here's one example, but it is not working in any table with words in the cells: Say, for example, I am trying to create a ...

Re: Template collection(s)?

When I downloaded the template I posted above, it was all messed up. Half of it was missing, and the rest was not usable.

What format should I use to upload documents to this forum so that they maintain their content and layout?

Thanks for your assistance —
