I use MS Word 2000's Outline mode a great deal, however, when I print the outline, it does not print the "bullets" which actually show as "-" or "+" in the document.  It only prints with indentations to show the different levels.

Anyone know how I can print Outline Mode documents with these bullets?

Hi neoshiro, you can print an outline but have to add it yourself, this is an how-to KB from MS on the subject

neoshiro,

If you just want to display each level with a bullet mark or a number, while in Outline Mode, select all the text, then click on Bullets or Numbering toolbar button or choose Format, Bullets and Numbering and select a bullet or a number sequence from the Numbering Tab.  This will place a bullet of your choosing or a number on each line of text.  Items from the Outline numbered tab will cause every line to have a number adjacent to it, but be flush with the left margin.  Unfortunately the numbers will be sequential from 1 to the end of the document.

You'll need to format the items thereafter, if you want to change the outline numbering sequence or paragraph outline positions, as this will simply place a number or bullet in front of each item, but keep the paragraph format of the original document.

Hope this helps.

bkpchs237, yours was the easiest, and completely satisfied my need for quick printing with bullets (didn't need the numbered list).  Thanks!
