Learn PowerPoint 2010 for Windows: Audio

Add Bookmarks for Audio Clips
One of the very important, new abilities in PowerPoint 2010 relates to you being able to play your audio files from a certain point within the clip. To do so, you need to use the Bookmarks feature. Bookmarks in PowerPoint are similar to the conventional bookmarks you place within the pages of a book you read. In the same way that you can easily access a particular page with the help of a bookmark, the Bookmarks you add to an audio clip become indicators of the position you want to play the clip from.

Learn PowerPoint 2011 for Mac: Indents

Indent Markers for Bulleted and Numbered Lists
Have you pulled your hair trying to adjust spacing before and after bulleted and numbered lists in PowerPoint? And if you have been valiant enough to try, did you succeed? And even if you succeeded to some extent, were you satisfied -- or did you want more control? This is at least one of those scenarios where we can tell you that PowerPoint has all the options you are looking for -- but where exactly you will tweak these options is not intuitive at all! Read on to learn more -- some part of this tutorial can be a little technical -- but we'll try to explain with use of plain English terms and several visuals.

Tweak Bullets with First Line Indent Marker
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.
