In the last issue, we talked about slides that had no bullet points. Let’s discuss more about this topic. While many people agree that bullet points can make a slide or even a presenter appear dumb, that’s not always the case. If you are using bullet points to show a list, then you should continue doing so — there’s no sense in creating a slide that has a list of recipe ingredients or even a shopping list in a format without lists! For most other slide types, you can look at some other non-bulleted alternatives. Slide purists love the idea of a single picture on each slide with a title — of course, both the picture and the title should work well with each other. Many other times, you can use SmartArt instead of bulleted lists. Sometimes, a table may work better.
