Default Custom bullets

Hi folks,
Sorry if this has been covered before, I'm good at repeating things or
stating the bleeding obvious.
Bulleted lists. can one use a custom bullet e.g. a jpg or other pic?
You can in Word, I did, imported it in a text file into a text box, and
Publisher (2003|7) forgot them.

If Your specification is vague or imprecise, you'll likely get just what you
asked for, but maybe not what you wanted!

Do not say it cannot be done, rather what you need to do it!

In Publisher you will have to create/insert an image and resize it small. There
are many symbols you can use as bullets. You can find dingbats all over the web.

Thanks for that Mary,
Now, how do I persuade publisher that I want to use the created/shrunken
image as a bullet?
I found where I can select the bullet character from a list of available
characters but not where to select a custom character/symbol.

You don't persuade. You insert the bullet as a picture, probably the best way
would be to use a table. Or line the bullets up, group them, add the text. It
will be a trial and error in spacing. That is why Publisher is a layout
application, you can do this sort of creating.

So what you're saying, is that although publisher has a bulleted listing
function, it is NOT customisable.

You can use any dingbat as a bullet, you just can't use images in the same way.
Word allows you to change images into bullets. You can change the color of the
bullet symbols.
