  • Do you use Character Styles for bullets? You should do so as with Paragraph styles, otherwise it happens that the bullet inherit properties of the first character in the paragraph.
  • What color has the used Character Style?

Additional question: Do you use manual or automatic bullets as part of the Paragraph Style?

i made the bullet point with the text  in paragraph style panel. and i only made a blue color in character style and i applied the blue color (character style) to the bulllet point style in paragraph style panel.

 it is very weird... and now i changed the shape to triangle and it has no problems that the blue color shows on the printed pdf. Just that solid squred shape prevents me to make it blue on printed PDF .... i have no idea what happend to the shapde... does the shape matters?
