In the Type dropdown list I am sure you have a glyph (or something) option. I am still with 10 so I cannot see what you see.
Otherwise, I am sure Harron or someone else will tell you the keyboard shortcut to get the special characters.
Thanks again Jacob, I had found that but the double click didn't work when I first tried it (using a dodgy mouse).
You are welcome, Mark. It may be time to call in the cat.
Option 8 on the Mac does it as well. It is kind of a small bullet like this • I usually make it
larger by using something like • windings and using option 8.
on the windows side I believeit is the alt key plus 8.
Thank you, Harron.
So, to sum up, everyone, regardless of version: to put a bullet to your head, just type My Alt+0149 (or Alt+7) head, using the numeric keyboard, and it will be right between the eyes words.
not on the Mac on the Mac it i still Option (alt)+8 to get the bullet
Strange to have such a difference between Win and Mac. Easy to overlook, hard to remember. Sorry. It may be time for a bullet.

Not at all, Jacob. We are talking about two entirely different operating systems (superficial similarities nothwithstanding). I would consider it strange if things like OS-level keyboard shortcuts were the same. I do not expect Apple and Microsoft OS developers talk to each other in hopes of achieving UI uniformity.
While on this topic, there are other differences between the platforms:
- The Option+8 shortcut in Mac OS works only with the 'regular' number 8 key, not the '8' on the numeric keypad. (The same goes for other similar 'special' characters.)
- The Alt+7 or Alt+0149 shortcut in Windows works only with the numeric keypad, not the 'regular' number keys. (The same goes for other Alt+ shortcuts.)
- The Option+ shortcuts in Mac OS insert the character immediately upon keypress.
- The Alt+ shortcuts in Windows insert the character only upon release of the Alt key.
