Quick tutorial on formatting, multilevel list in Word 2007?

I have a document in notepad, with a lot of change of line in it of course. And I have a word template, how to quickly copy and adjust the format in word 2007? The main thing I found it hard is how to apply multi-level list and change of line (enter key) in Word, and line alignment in Word 2007. It's never easy for me. I don't need a word tutorial, just wonder any materials to cover this kind of question (show the process, not how to use bullet, etc.)? Thanks.

If your notepad document has line ending characters at the end of each line, and you want those lines to flow as a single paragraph in Word, then after pasting the text into Word, replace all paragraph marks with spaces, like this:
Ctrl+Shift+8    (toggles the Show/Hide feature on so that you can see the para marks, spaces, etc.).
Ctrl+Home (goes to the top of the document)
Ctrl+H  (Find and Replace)
Find what:   ^p    (the ^ is a caret character -- Shift+6 on US keyboards)
Replace with: [space]
Click Replace All.
Wherever you want a new paragraph, simply press the enter key.
To apply bullets, select the paragraphs you want, then click the bullet button on the Home tab.

Thanks. That's helpful. My problem also is multi-list usage, it's not always as I expected: when I wanted to list several items under a upper level item, I got all the items listed at one level; Or when I tried to list one block, but for some reason, one line outside the block also got listed. So I guess I dont know the basic principle of the multilist usage. Any quick tips on how to freely control multi-list? Also, when to use Headings, when to just use bold, etc. if I have multi level block? Thanks.
Whew!!  You're going to have to get some more practice using Word yourself. Experts Exchange really isn't a forum for a formatting tutorial, I'm afraid.

Hi heyday2004,

It is probabally best to use the Word View-Outline function.

1. Create a new Word document with your existing template.
2. Copy the document in notepad as test into the nwew Word document
3. Select View - Outline
4. Apply the appropriate level headings to the the text

Note that this technique will also allow you to generate a table of contents.

I hope that helps.
