I am using the "trial" version of Labels & Addresses to see if it will work for me. Is there a way to add bullets to a postcard?

Hi molly28
If you wish to format text as lists with bullets (or anything else) like this:

(black borders are here just to make boxes easier to distinguish)
#1 (first text box from the above screenshot)
insert/type your text
#2 (second box)
add a bullet at the beginning of each paragraph (use Option @)
#3 (third box)
insert a TAB char after the bullet (so between the bullet and the first character of each paragraph. (Steps #1 to #3 may be done in one step if you prefer)
#4 select all text (all box content)
#5 (fourth box)
then move the first tab stop from the (horizontal) ruler to adjust the position of the first character (by default, all tab stops are left ones)
Doing this with the full box content selected sets the tab stop(s) the same way for all paragraphs.
#6 (fifth box)
note that bullets are part of the box content (as tex) so changing font/style of the box content changes font/style of the bullets too

Btw., trial version of L&A (or DC/SP/BCC) works the same way that registered version excepted that there's a watermark when printing/exporting
Hope this helps.
