Setting List Properties

You can change numbered list and bulleted list properties in Dreamweaver. Choose between five types of numbering, as shown in Table 4.3. For bulleted lists, you can choose either a round bullet (the default) or a square bullet. There are no properties to set for a definition list.

Table 4.3. List-Numbering Options

List Name



1, 2, 3, 4 ...

Roman Small

i, ii, iii, iv ...

Roman Large

I, II, III, IV ...

Alphabet Small

a, b, c, d ...

Alphabet Large

A, B, C, D ...

To set list properties:

  1. Click in the list you want to change to place the insertion point.
  2. Choose Text > List > Properties.

    The List Properties dialog appears (Figure 4.32).

    Figure 4.32 In the List Properties dialog, you can change the way lists are numbered and bulleted.

  3. Do one or more of the following:
    • In the List type pop-up menu, select Bulleted List, Numbered List, or Directory List ("definition list" is called "Directory List" in this dialog for some reason).
    • In the Style pop-up menu, select one of the Bulleted List or Numbered List styles.
    • Use the Start count text box to set the value for the first item in the numbered list.
  4. Click OK.
