Default Bullet Points from Word to Publisher

Hi all

I am using Office 2007.

When I use MS Word to produce some text containing bullet points and then copy it into Publisher, the formatting remains but the actual bullet points (the black dots) have disappeared.

How can I overcome this, so that what I copy comes out exactly as in the Word document.

Thanks in advance

Robert

An option I have found that seems to work most of the time is if you create a textbox in Publisher, then right-click on it and select Change Text / Edit Story in Microsoft Word, then copy and paste your formatted Word text into this new Word document.

When you close that new Word document, the text comes across to Publisher with the right formatting.

Thanks for the reply. However for me the solution didn't quite work. The bullet points came across OK, but the surrounding paragraphs had their font size reduced by 1. My whole document was in Arial 11 - the dot points came over that way but the rest of the document was Arial 10. Not a big deal to modify it then within Publisher but very strange!
