I'm looking for a neat and tidy way to have multiple lines, say an address, on a single bullet point. I've managed to copy and paste some text and achieve this effect, but I can't seem to duplicate it.

Shit-Enter to add a line break rather than a pargraph break?

Ahh, thank you. I didn't know there was such a distinction. Smile

<- Relatively new to word processing

In that case you have fewer bad habits to unlearn. Smile

OOo.org, particularly Writer, is very Styles oriented. That is, the best way to do almost all fomatting and layout is by using Styles rather than manually doing things like bolding text or using tabs, etc,. for tables (actually inserting a table works better here)

Have a look at the Style and Template chapters at
OpenOffice.org 3 User Guides

A few minutes spent setting up some styles or a complete template can save you a tremendous amount of time and hassle in the long run.
