    Help! I take notes in class and use bullet points with different levels, however sometimes randomly all the bullet points would align up so all my levels disappear. How do I fix this?

    It seems to be set off when I switch between italics/bold (ie when I press command+I or command+B) and when I use spell check....

    I use Microsoft word 2011, on a Macbook air running the latest iSO.

    Thanks in advanced!

    Hi there,

    What do you mean by levels exactly ? Could you post a screenshot / grab (use grab tool - type grab into spotlight if you dont know where to find it),

    And i'll see if I can replicate your issue and if there are anything we can do to solve it :)

    I also have dealt with this constantly (mac word 2011). The only thing I've found to deal with it is, when changing font properties (like bold, colour etc.) and all bullet points suddenly realign to the first indentation, to immediately hit control+z. It's extremely irritating, and I've resorted to not using bullet points past the 1st indentation now just in case it happens. It someone has any solutions, that would be great.
