Bulleted Works Cited pages are not standard MLA format, so please be sure that is what your instructor requested so that you do not lose points.
If so, the best way to do this is to:
- Type, or copy and paste, your first reference into your Word document.
- Place your cursor in front of the first word in your reference and click the bullet icon in the Paragraph section of the toolbar to add your bullet.
- To force the 2nd line to indent, place your cursor at the beginning of the second line of the reference & hit Ctri + Tab at the same time.
- Repeat for all other references.
- OMG! I Love you! I have trying to line up my two lined bullets all morning. I have read help tabs, blogs, ate a pack of M&M's, paced back and forth from the back door to the kitchen and back about twenty times, ate two cans of tuna a hand full of lettuce, and was stressing because my wife will be home from work and I am, stuffed from stress eating and am still working on the same damn application form.............. OMG "CTRL-TAB"
- This doesn't work with hyperlinked or underlined items.
- I tested this method with text including a hyperlink, and it worked. Remember that a hyperlink or URL is considered "one word", so it may end up on the next line. In that case, simply put your cursor in front of that line again and hit Ctrl + Tab one more time. I am using Word 2013.
- If you're on a Mac, I found Function-Tab did the trick. Thanks to OP.
- I don't know why there are thumbs down for this, you've answered the question properly. I too was fiddling round with margins and all sorts knowing there was a much easier way but found it hard to find the right answer. And voila! You've given it to me! Thank you!
