4.2  C.  9.  Replace bullet points with asterisks

Back to:  4. Proofread a Book


              1)  Please replace all bullet points with asterisks
              2)  Search the document for "standard" bullet points
              3)  Replace each bullet point individually with an asterisk
              4)  There should be 1 space after each asterisk
              5)  If a bullet point is followed by a tab, you may leave the tab there


1)  Please replace all bullet points with asterisks

      Braille does not correctly translate bullet points that originate from MS Word.


2)  Search the document for "standard" bullet points

      A.  First go to the very beginning of the document by doing a:
               Control  +  Home

      B.  To bring up the Find dialog (not the Find and Replace), do a:
               Control  +  f

      C.  In the Find box, type:
               ^0149

           (That is:  a caret, then the 4 digits.
           "^0149" is the code for a "standard" bullet point in Word.)

           Another way of getting a bullet point into the Find box is to find one first, copy it,
           then paste it directly into the Find box.


3)  Replace each bullet point individually with an asterisk

      Do not do a Global Replace!


4)  There should be 1 space after each asterisk, like this:

      BEFORE replacing the bullet points:

      • Dogs
      • Cats


      AFTER replacing with asterisks:

     * Dogs
     * Cats


      Please don't do this:
      (below, there is no space between the bullet point and the text)

     *Dogs
     *Cats



5)  If a bullet point is followed by a tab, you may leave the tab there

      -  The RTF Converter will change a tab to a space.
      -  You don't need to change any tabs to spaces.
