Are you still making em{bulleted and numbered lists} by manually typing bullets or numbers at the beginning of each line?
In the 21st century, no one should be doing this task by hand. Manually formatted lists are a waste of time and prone to error. I can get you started, but if youre unfamiliar with automated lists, spend some time with your word processors manual or help file.
As I suggested in xref{mixing fonts}, its acceptable to set a list index (i.e., a bullet or a number) in a different font than the list item itself. You can also make the list index a smaller point size.
Asterisks are sometimes used as bullets, but theyre not qualified for the jobtheyre too small and too high.
