Understanding Presentations – Lists
Indent bulleted text. Remove indent from bulleted text.
Indentation helps in defining the amount of space to be made available to the right and to the left side of the page. Indentation can be done by selecting ‘Format’ option from the main menu bar. Now select ‘Paragraph’ from the drop down list which gets displayed. In the ‘Paragraph’ dialog box which gets displayed, under the ‘Indents & Spacing’ tab, under the section ‘Indent’, we can specify the indentation required for the bulleted text as has been shown below.
Indentation from the bulleted text can be removed by selecting the value ‘0’ in the ‘Before text:’ or ‘After text:’ option as has been shown in the above figure. After selecting all the values, click on ‘OK’.
Adjust line spacing before and after bulleted, numbered lists.
Line spacing is defined as the space between the lines in a paragraph. Line spacing for bulleted and numbered lists can be defined by using the same ‘Paragraph’ dialog box which was used in the earlier sections. In this dialog box, under the ‘Indents & Spacing’ tab, open the ‘Line Spacing’ drop-down list and then select the type of line spacing required. After selecting the required value, click on ‘OK’.
Switch between the different standard bullets, number styles in a list.
To switch between different bullet and number styles, click on ‘Format’ from the main menu bar and from the resulting menu, click on ‘Bullets and Numbering’. This will open the ‘Bullets and Numbering’ dialog box.
In this dialog box, under the ‘Bullets’ and ‘Numbering Type’ tabs, we have lists of different bullet and numbering styles. The required style can be chosen from these lists and after making all the changes, click on ‘OK’. This will save the changes to the presentation.
This is how we can switch between different standard bullet and number styles.
