In spite of the repeated cries about how bullets can cause “death by PowerPoint”, bulleted paragraphs are still being used in PowerPoint. We won’t go into whether or not you should use bulleted paragraphs in your slides — suffice to say that too much of anything cannot be good! However most PowerPoint slide layouts are already set up with placeholders for bulleted lists (or paragraphs), so that when you start typing into a text placeholder, your text is automatically bulleted. Sometimes making some changes to the appearance of your bullets can make a difference. We show how you can change the bullet styles for your text placeholders (or text boxes) in PowerPoint 2011.
