Slideshows are all about the Bullets and Numbered Lists. We need to know how to turn them on and off and customize them at will. Before I get started, I want to make one quick point. Use bullets when the order of the items of the list doesn't matter, like your shopping list. And use numbers when the items are in a specific required order, like a process or recipe. And don't use either one when you're dealing with just one item. Let's start with slide number two, Introductions, where instead of Bullets we're going to change this to a Numbered List.
We'll click on the boundary of the Text box and press the Numbered List Icon, found in the Home tab of the Ribbon in the Paragraph Group. Notice that this is a toggle. I can toggle back and forth between regular Bullets and a Numbered List. In fact, if I click it again, it goes away completely. So there's a Numbered List, and Numbered Lists behave exactly to expect in Microsoft Word or any other program. If I bring my cursor to the end of the word "name," press Enter, a new number is created and all the others are pushed down.
Let's look at Slide number 3, our Endorsement. Bullets don't serve this slide very well. We should remove them. So I'll click on the boundary of the text box and click on the Bullets Icon to turn off the bullets. Also, notice that both of these icons, Bullets and Numbers, give us a pulldown gallery of choices. We can even customize these choices if we want. But for now, let's just go ahead and eliminate the Bullets from the Slide. Let's look at slide number 9. This slide suffers from the same problem as the other.
It should not have any bullets at all. So one more time. I'll click into the text box, click the boundary and then remove the bullets by clicking on the Bullet Icon. Switching Bullets for Numbers, or Numbers for Bullets, or ditching both and having nothing is as easy as toggling your choice from the Ribbon. Both Bullets and Numbers can be customized further in terms of Size, Symbols, Color, Line-spacing, Indenting and more. But we'll save that for another course.
