  1. Locate the image to serve as bullet and save to a local drive.
    Tip: for best results, seek medium or small sized images with transparency (i.e. PNG, GIF).
  2. Select your list, then, on the Home tab, click Bullets to format with default bullet style.
  3. Place cursor on blank line, click Insert and then Picture. Navigate to your custom bullet image and click Open.
  4. Using the corner selection handle resize the image to an appropriate size.
  5. Click + drag image onto one of the bullets in your list; you’ll recognize you’ve hit the target when the bullet area turns grey.
