Hi Roger:

The goal is to change the bullet character from the hollow circle to the solid circle?

If so, I'd do as follows:

  1. Save the file before you start, so that you can revert if you make a mistake, or if this matches other paragraphs that you haven't mentioned yet.
  2. Create a new paragraph tag for the bullets (or use the default Bulleted paragraph tag found in all new documents). Define the bullet in Paragraph Designer.
  3. Manually delete the o \t from the first list paragraph and assign the bullet paragraph tag. Adjust if necessary until it looks the way you want it to.
  4. With your cursor in the same paragraph, choose Edit > Copy Special > Paragraph Format to copy the bullet paragraph format into the clipboard
  5. Edit > Find/Change
    1. Find: Text: o \t
    2. Change: By Pasting
      This assigns the bullet paragraph tag to all paragraphs that begin with the hollow bullet
  6. Edit > Find/Change
    1. Find: Text o \t
    2. Change: To Text [leave the text field blank]
      This will remove the o \t from the paragraphs, leaving you with • bullets.
