    Adding Bullets to text in Photoshop

    I am using Photoshop cs3 and can't figure out how to add bullets in front and in between text. Any suggestions?

    wow... alt7 works too?

    (I use Arttildawn's suggestion, because I don't have any alt-key commands memorized)

    Thanks! I learned something cool today! Just last week I needed some bullets... ended up making them on another layer using the round selection tool and a fill of the appropriate color on a separate layer then cutting and pasting in as many as I needed. This is MUCH faster and accurate too!

    In HTML it's
    Code:
    or
    Code:
    &bull;
    , but even then I still prefer a gif image that I create myself (better size, color and shape control)

    So in Corel, Photoshop or whatever, especially for larger format signage, isn't simply drawing them the best option?

    if several bullets occur within text, the advantage of using a text based bullet is that the text block may go through various stages of editing sizes, fonts & colors. When a bullet exists between two items on a laundry list, with a space on each side... this configuration will flow along through several stages of editing... if it is text. Otherwise, it can become quite an annoying little ordeal to edit.

    that's interesting to me, Jim. If you do a bullet in a program as part of the type, you know it will line up with the rest of the type, as well as the bulilet changing with any type of reformatting. It would seem to me that having the bullets as seperate images in a layout program could be problematic.

    Using coding for the web, however, I would agree with the sizing and color comment, but for a sign I think flowing with the text would be best.

    I've found that bullets in some fonts are not what you'd expect, thats why I use the character map. It provides a preview. I have it added to my quick launch toolbar for easy access.

    LOL. OK; it's just me.

    I probably over-tweak (understatement) on just about everything.

    Rep try holding the 'Fn' key, then press Alt, then do 0149 on the integrated 10-key pad.

    Hard to get used to, but works well for me.

    • (Alt+0149) ¼ (Alt+0188) ½ (Alt+0189) ° (Alt+0176)

    Handy site that I refer to often as the bullet is the only one I can seem to commit to memory for some reason.

    http://tlt.its.psu.edu/suggestions/i...s/codealt.html

    Remember to hold the Alt key then type the numbers on the numeric key pad (be sure Num Lock is on)


    I had no idea about the alt-7 either. Thanks yet again signs101!

    On a side note, some fonts wont bullet in Photoshop.
