Bulleted lists allow you to clearly display the main points of your presentation on slides. The text boxes on design templates already include bulleted lists. Click the place holder on the slide to begin adding text and press the ENTER key to return to the next line and add a new bulleted item. To go to the next line without adding another bullet, hold down the SHIFT key while pressing ENTER.
If you are not creating a bulleted list from an existing placeholder on a design template, or if you would like to add an
additional bulleted list, follow these steps to create a new list:
In Normal or Outline view, text can easily be entered in the outline window and new slides are automatically
added. Follow the steps below to become familiar with adding slide content in outline view:
If there is more than one bulleted list on the slide, the lists will be designated by numbers enclosed in black boxes. The example below shows the slide created from the outline on the left. The bulleted list on the left side of the slide is labeled list "1" on the outline and the list on the right is labeled list "2". When typing the outline, begin typing in the new list by pressing CTRL+ENTER. In this example, CTRL+ENTER was pressed after typing "Access".
Follow these steps to create a numbered list:
Select a text box by clicking on it with the mouse. A border with nine handles will appear around the text box. The four handles on the corners will resize the length and the width of the box at once while the handles on the sides will resize only in one direction. Click one of the handles and drag it with the mouse. Release the mouse button when it is the size you want it to be. Move the text box by clicking and dragging the thick, dotted border with the mouse.
Change the colors, borders, and backgrounds of a text box from the Format AutoShape dialog box.
To delete a text box from a template, simply click the border of the text box and press the DELETE key on the keyboard.
From Normal View, notes can be added to the slide. These notes will not be seen on your presentation, but they can be printed out on paper along with the slide the notes refer to by selecting Print What: Notes Pages on the Print menu.
