Although this is not so obvious, the position of the bullets or numbers in a list is influenced by indent markers you see on the Horizontal Ruler within PowerPoint. There are three types of Indent Markers — the First Line Indent Marker, the Hanging Indent Marker, and the Left Indent Marker. In this tutorial, we will explore how the First Line Indent Marker influences the position of the bullets (or numbers). The First Line Indent Marker determines the left most edge of the bullet character itself. If you drag this First Line Indent Marker along the Horizontal Ruler, the bullets associated with the selected text also move accordingly.

Learn how to tweak bulleted or numbered paragraphs using the first line indent marker in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac.
