How To Make Sub Bullet Points In Google Docs

Bullets are a great way to organize your thoughts and ideas in Google Docs, but sometimes you need a little more organization than what regular bullets can provide. Sub-bullets, or nested bullets, can give you that extra level of organization.

To create sub-bullets in Google Docs, simply:

Step 1

Open the Google Docs where you want to make the sub-bullets.

Step 2

Click the bulleted list icon in the toolbar. This will begin a new bulleted list.

Step 3

Type out the first item in your list. To create a sub-bullet, press Tab on your keyboard. This will indent the bullet and create a new level.

Step 4

Type out your second item. To create another sub-bullet, press Tab again. You can continue to press Tab to create additional levels of sub-bullets.

To go back to the previous level, press Shift+Tab. This will un-indent the bullet and take you back to the previous level.


That’s all there is to it! By using the Tab key, you can easily create sub-bullets in Google Docs. This can be a great way to organize your thoughts and ideas. Thanks for reading!
