Hello!

I have a question about organizing bullets in Adobe InDesign. I created a character style for bullets and nested it in a paragraph style. Later, I changed the bullet size from the character style. Currently, it seems that the bullets are positioned at the top of the text. How can I center the bullets in the middle of the first line? I would appreciate any help.

You have to apply a Character Style to the bullet, in Bullets & Numbering setup.

Then you can adjust that style to change font, color, size and many other things. To align a bullet with the text, use the Baseline Shift. You typically want to adjust it in fractions of a point, rarely more than 2 points overall:

Just to be clear, you don't usually use Nested Styles for bullets — maybe you meant the above, assigning a Char Style, but I wanted to make sure.
