  1. I have Microsoft 365 Office. Still looking for “Bullets” or “Bullet Library” as you mentioned. Can you tell me where to find it in your next update? It does not seem to be very office. I like using them. Office seems to insert them for me automatically but sometimes I need to get the bullets started and can’t find how to get them to start so I just use and “*” sign. Need better lessons on this.
