Dear Alain:

thank you very much for your concern on my issue.

The tw-latex.txt file I modified is the one in

C:\Documents and Settings\shaopeng\TeXworks\completion

and in linux, it is in ~/texworks/res/resfiles/completion

I do not know why but neither in linux or in windows I never succeeded to modify it....

I am really really sorry to hear that the bullets do not work well under windows. I like it very much:(

Regards, Shao Peng
