Lists have many styles, and many word processors have multiple settings for them. Severalof them give you tools and settings to indent and align bullet and number points.
The two word processors that are the most feature rich, LibreOffice Writer and Microsoft Word 2016 for Windows, have many of the same settings for lists. They give users a lot of control over aligning and indenting points in those lists.
These settings can work on simple lists, with only one level of numbers or bullets. However, the dialogs for the lists are designed for multilevel lists, that have a combination of numbers and bullets.
Though many of their setting features are the same, Writer and Word have advantages over the other. This article will cover the tools both have for aligning and editing lists and discuss the advantages each one has over the other.
