Microsoft Word/Bullets on the right

This problem plagued me as well. I read a document about right to left languages which helped to solve the problem.

Step 1. is to add a right to left language (any of them ie. Arabic or Hebrew)under the "Review" - "Language" - "Language Preferences" "[add additional editing language]" dropdown. I used Arabic (Egypt), then in the window above click the "not enabled" and it will redirect you to the windows add a language portion. just follow the prompts. Once this is complete is should ask you to restart Word. Naturally be sure you have your document backed up!

Step 2. Open you Word document and you should now have a two paragraph symbols under the paragraph section of the ribbon. Select the text you want right to left and then click the paragraph symbol with the arrow on the right side.

Step 3. Viola you should now have a bulleted/numbered list with the list on the right side. You will likely want to right align your text now to match the right side.

Best wishes and good luck! :D
