Bullet indent, but bullet is missing

Hello everyone,

 

I was wondering if anyone else had run into this problem before. I applied bullets to my list, and they all indented, and every sentence added a bullet except for the last one. Still trying to figure out how to fix this; please help if you can! Thank you!

Are all three paragraphs using the same Paragraph Style?

 

Does the third one show a + sign on the style name, indicating an override (actually, hard to do with bullet settings).

 

Is that last paragraph a true paragraph, or is it spaced down with two soft returns?

 

There should be a hard return at the end of each paragraph; turn on hidden characters if you're not sure, and you should see a 'pilcrow' (paragraph symbol) at the end of each.

Good! Train yourself out of using soft returns/line breaks etc. They are a poor layout method and cause many formatting quirks in a style-driven app like ID.

 

Use style top and bottom spacing control instead.
