Enter twice before the list. Type the list unformatted (without the bullets or numbers) at the left margin. If all the items in the list are 1 line long, single-space the entire list. If any items in the list are multiline, single-space within each item in the list but double-space between items. Ds after the list. Select all lines of the list and apply the number or bullet feature to the selected lines of the list only. Decrease the indent to position the list at the left margin.
