AutoFormatting Text and Numbered Lists

PowerPoint recognizes ordinals, fractions, em-dashes and en-dashes, formatted AutoCorrect entries and smart quotes followed by a number, and formats them as you type. For example, if you type 1/2, PowerPoint replaces it with fi. You can also automatically number a list. PowerPoint recognizes your intent; when you enter a number followed by a period and a space, PowerPoint will format the entry and the subsequent entries as a numbered list. If you insert a new line in the middle of the numbered list, PowerPoint automatically adjusts the numbers.

AutoFormat Text as You Type

In Normal view, click to place the insertion point in the text where you want to type.

Type text you can AutoFormat, such as 1/2, and then press the Spacebar or Enter.

PowerPoint recognizes this as a fraction and changes it to fi.
