Using bullet points
Rules for using bullet points
Full stops or not?
Bullet points are often incorporated into a sentence structure, generally preceeded by :. If this is the case, there are no capital letters on each line and the full stop goes at the end.
If bullet points are used without a lead in, they have a capital letter at the start of each line and a full stop at the end as in the sections Why and Rules for using bullet points above.
These rules apply to all uses of bullet points. They are a very useful way of listing important information.
