In PowerPoint when you type text within a placeholder, the default result is that you create a bulleted list. Also, when you import an outline, all the content other than the slide titles ends up becoming bulleted text. While this may work in some situations, at other times you may want to either remove the bullets altogether, or convert it to a numbered list.
In this tutorial, you will learn how you can change a bulleted list to a numbered list in PowerPoint 2013:
- Open any presentation or create a new one. Then navigate to a slide that contains bulleted text -- select
the entire placeholder by clicking on the edge of the placeholder (see Figure 1).

- Access the Home tab of the
Ribbon, and click the
Numbering button, shown highlighted in red within

- This changes the bulleted list to numbered list of the selected text, as shown in Figure 3
(compare Figures 1 and 3).
