The information you provided is a bit vague but I think you're trying to use cmd/ctrl + \ to align the second line of a bulleted item with the text above. This is an old-school QuarkXpress approach and is no longer needed. To get the bullet aligned properly, you'll want to apply a positive left indent to the paragraph which will push all of the text to the right. Then use a negative first line indent to push the text of the first line back to the left getting the text to align. Typically the values are the same but one value (left) is positive, and the other (first line) is negative. See screen shot below.

Can you rephrase the question as I don't know what you mean?
