As you design your PowerPoint slides you might want to create a numbered list of topics or important points. If you want your PowerPoint slide to include a numbered list, follow these steps:


Click the Numbering button, next to the Bullets button on the Home tab.

When you click the Numbering button, PowerPoint adds simple numbers to the selected paragraphs. But you can change the format.


Click the Numbering button arrow.

A list of number style choices displays.


For more options, choose Bullets and Numbering.

The Numbered tab of the Bullets and Numbering dialog box opens.

Normally, the starting number for each list reverts to 1 for each new slide. If you have a list that has more items than will fit on one slide, type the first half of the list on one slide and then type the second half of the list on a second slide. Next, right-click the first item on the second slide and choose Bullets and Numbering from the menu that appears. Change the Start At value to the number you want to be the first number in the second part of the list.
