The building block for the standard bullet character is \b, which happens to be the very first itme in the buliding block pick list in the Paragraph Designer. You can certainly specify some alternative character, but that means you'll need to deal with the kind of character mapping issues that you are now seeing. > When I have created new paragraph tags in the past for which I needed > bullets, > I usually select an existing paragraph format that already has a bullet and > then > modify the other properties. IMO this is not a good practice unless you fully understand how the formatting is defined and implemented for the underlying style. If you don't have that understanding (or do not take the time to actually look at all its properties before cloning it) you wind up perpetuating earlier ad hoc or idiosyncratic formatting decisions. For example, it is more customary to control the horizontal position of the bullet by setting the first line indent rather than using a second tab stop. If you look at the "Bulleted" style in the default new document (i.e., blank page) template, you'll see that the autonumbering is \b\t (a bullet aligned to the first line indent, followed by a tab) rather than \t\b\t, which would require two tab stops to be defined on the Basic tab of the Paragraph Designer.
