Working with Numbered and Bulleted Lists

Select the text you want to make into a numbered list.

Click the Numbering button on the Formatting toolbar.

The text is formatted as a numbered list. Now select the text you want to make into a list of graphical bullets.

INTRODUCTION

Using bulleted or numbered lists is a great way to present a series of points in your slides. You can create a numbered or bulleted list by selecting existing text and clicking either the Bullets or Numbering button on the Formatting toolbar, or you can click the button first and then begin typing to create the list.


TIP

Multilevel Lists

PowerPoint enables you to create multilevel bulleted and numbered lists. When typing text into a list, simply press the Tab key to indent the list to a new level.


TIP

Bullets and Numbers

Use bullets when you are listing items that are in no particular order. Use numbers when your items are in an order, such as with a series of steps or a top-ten list.


Right-click the selection and select Bullets and Numbering from the shortcut menu that appears.

The Bullets and Numbering dialog box opens. Click the Picture button. (If you want to use a standard bullet, simply double-click one in the dialog box and skip the next step.)

Scroll through the list of available picture bullets. When you find one you like, double-click it.

The text you selected in step 3 is formatted as a bulleted list using the bullet design you selected in step 6.
