I was highlighting a word in Word and then when I created a bullet for the next sentence, the bullet also was highlighted in the background with the same color. I don't want my bullets highlighted but I can't go to the highlight tool and click off the background highlighting because Word won't let me put the cursor over the bullet

Select the whole line containing the bullet and click off the highlight. Then select just the text you want highlighted, and reapply the highlight.

I tried that and I can get the line to remove the highlighting but the bullet remains highlighted. I also highlighted the whole paragraph then removed the highlighting but when I tried to highlight a section of that paragraph again, the bullet that started the paragraph became highlighted again.

 

I should have mentioned I'm using Word 2007. I tried to copy the text here but the bullet with the highlighting wouldn't copy. I then tried to send a print screen but got an error message that I couldn't send a message with that extension to this forum.

I got it to work by removing the highlighting, removing the bullet then re-highlighting the section I needed in the paragraph then adding the bullet. I would think there's an easier solution but this seemed to work.

Hi Godzilla. 

 

I think it will also work without removing the highlighting first and the adding it back. I recreated what was happening for you, then placed my cursor at beginning of line (kept the highlighting on the word), backspaced to line above, then pressed enter. 

 

It then added the new bullet and kept the highlighted word (without the bullet appearing highlighted too).
