Combining Outline number with Bullets

Hi All

In MS Word,  just wondering if anyone knows of a way to prefix outline numbering with a symbol (e.g. a wingdings character).  

As far as I can tell I'd need to use a table with the symbol in the left cell and the numbered paragraph in the right cell.  This might work but I think it is clunky.

Appreciate thoughts / a way forward.

Thanks, S

I don't think so.  As far as I can tell that is just bullets without numbering (the numbers shown look like text).

YES! You can insert certain characters as prefix or suffix to numbers of numbered lists!

But only the symbols that can be written using ASCII codes.

If you know how to define lists, then:Number and symbol

Ok... that's cool!  

I had a quick look but it seems I would not be able to use mixed font sets (I really want to use symbols from Win/Web dings...  this approach looks like I'd need to use 1 style for the number and another for the symbol which I'm not sure is possible...

Thanks for this... time to close.  It is not really what I was looking for but I think it is the best that can be done within the context of the question.  I am arranging my document in tables...

Cheers.

Unfortunately, only symbols with a corresponding ASCII code can be used
