I'd like to make a list of 20 items where I will have a short sentence next to each.  but I'd like to expand on those where on sentence is not enough and have a longer description, or even a source code description, for those needing it.

Can I do this in Word 2003?  How about a newer version of Word?

I hope this does not take to much configuration or it would not be worth it.

Cheers,

What is it that causes a clean separation between items?  Then Page Return key?

Just wondering.  I am about to play with it now.

The return key enters a paragraph mark, and hence splits the text into two paragraphs.

Each paragraph has an Outline level (1 to 9 or body).

The Outline toolbar has buttons to show or hide all paragraphs according to level. You can also use the toolbar to promote and demote any paragraph(s) in the selection.
