How to Format a PowerPoint 2007 Text Frame To Hold Normal Paragraphs

Most PowerPoint text frames are designed to hold bulleted lists. When you click to add text in a PowerPoint text frame, your text becomes the first item in a bulleted list. When you press the Enter key to move to the next line, PowerPoint places another bullet character. Select your list and follow these steps to turn a bulleted or numbered list into normal, un-indented paragraphs:


On the Home tab click the Bullets button.

Bullet options display.


On the ruler drag the Subsequent Line marker to the left so that it lines up with the First-Line Indent marker.

To display the ruler, click the View tab and then click the Ruler check box.


Or click the Paragraph group button on the Home tab to open the Paragraph dialog box.

On the Indents and Spacing Tab, open the Special drop-down list, choose (None) instead of Hanging, and click OK.
