I finally figured out what my problem was. I was using the Indent button instead of the Demote button. Once I got my buttons straight everything worked fine.

You are right: Edit your Default template. Then edit the List style you want to use. Make these changes in the Option tab. Make any other changes that you want to use and click OK to close it. Save your Default template. One thing that was not mentioned explicitly. Step 1 needs to be done for each level of bullets you want to use. (I think from your original email that you understand this, but I wanted to make sure.)

Does this mean it cannot be done with a Style? The reason I ask is that this window seems very similar to the Style window, but I assume it will only let me do something in the current document. Presumably if I could create a style and save it in my Default template I would have it available to me for all future documents.

My suggestion is to go to Format > Bullets and Numbering > Options


 1. Select the level from the left
 2. Change the "Numbering" drop-down to "Bullet"
 3. Then choose "Bullets" from the only other drop-down left
 4. Then use the button labelled "..." to choose the bullet you want.

    Is it possible to create nested bullet lists where each level has
    a different bullet type? Somehow I am failing to do it, even when
    I see what looks like possibilities. For example, if you open the
    Numbering Style window, go to the Outline tab, and look at the
    bottom right selection it looks like what I want to do, but
    selecting it does  not create this type of nested list. And when I
    go to the Options tab it lets me select different characters for
    each level, but it won't let me apply them. I'm thinking I may be
    missing some basic part of this that makes everything work. Can
    anyone shed light on this?

    Thank you,
