Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Set Text Indentation Using Numerical Values

Mar 30, 2015

Tweak Bulleted Paragraphs With Left Indent Marker in PowerPoint 2013When your text paragraphs comprise multiple bulleted levels, you can just use the defaults that PowerPoint provides -- this takes care of all paragraph indentation issues. However, to have more control you have to use your own indentation values -- this option makes your text look consistent and clear , as per your needs. Indent Markers visible on the Ruler are probably the easiest way to achieve such structured results. However, this method does not let you precisely position the indentation since you just drag and pull the Indent Markers rather than setting them up via an exact numerical value. Fortunately, you can also set indentation using set numerical values.

And, we will also show you how you can set any Custom Show as the default within a presentation -- this means that when you actually play your presentation in Slide Show view, only the slides within the Custom Show you select will be shown!

Tweak Bulleted Paragraphs With Left Indent Marker in PowerPoint 2013

You have already explored how you can use the First Line Indent Marker and the Hanging Indent Marker to tweak bulleted paragraphs in PowerPoint 2013. By tweaking, we mean adjusting the spacing before and after the bullet character. The next and last of these indent markers on the Ruler is the Left Indent Marker -- this acts like a lock on the First Line Indent Marker and the Hanging Indent Marker. Funnily enough, it is called the Left Indent Marker even though it is placed at right-most of the three markers!

Handmade Slides: Using Scanned Pictures

Using pictures in your slides does not mean that you are limited to using photographs from stock photo houses. You can certainly use your own camera -- either a digital camera or even the camera built within your phone to source your own pictures. You can also look at some unconventional sources, such as a scanner. A scanner? Yes, that's a device that several of us have not used for many years now -- but if you have one of these devices attached to your computer, do consider it as a source of visual content.

Explore how a scanner can be put to good use to add interest to your slides.
