People talk about how bullets can cause “death by PowerPoint”, and while that may be partially true, it certainly is not the complete truth, not everyone is in the rush to abandon bullet points in their slides! Even then, too much of anything cannot be good and bulleted lists are almost the mainstay of PowerPoint slides these days. Most of PowerPoint’s slide layouts are already set up with placeholders for bulleted lists (or paragraphs). So, when you start typing into a text placeholder, your text is automatically bulleted. Making changes in how bullets appear visually can make a subtle difference; so we show you how you can change the bullet styles for your text placeholders.

To learn more, choose your version of PowerPoint. If we do not have a tutorial for your version of PowerPoint, explore the version closest to the one you use.
