Roman numerals originated in ancient Rome and are still used today in a variety of applications. You will have to use Roman Numerals for creating an outline for a story or report. They are commonly used to number book chapters and on clocks and watches as well.

It’s very easy!! Word will automatically enter Roman Numerals for you and all you have to do is to press the Enter or Tab button to do it.

* Open MS Word

* On the Toolbar, go to Format

* Go down to Bullets and Numbering

* Go to the Tab that says "Numbered"

* And find the one that numbers in Roman numerals. (usually the last one in the top row)

* Hit Enter to start a new topic!

If u need to make a subtopic, after hitting Enter press the Tab key.You can hit the tab key a few times to keep moving left for deeper subtopics!

If you use some other document to type or need information about roman numerals, there are online websites that converts normal numbers to roman digits, and vice versa .You can copy and paste it.
