Numbered lists use the 1, 2, 3 numerical style by default. It's possible to change the numbered list styles to something else such as a list using alphabets or Roman numerals -- just like you change bulleted list styles. You can use several numerical styles in PowerPoint -- there are variations in digits, alphabets, and Roman numerical styles. Follow these steps to learn more:

  1. Open your presentation and navigate to the slide that contains a numbered list -- select the text in one of the following ways:

    1. If you want to make changes to just one line in the numbered list of the text placeholder (or text box), then select that individual line.
    2. If you want to make these changes to all lines in the numbered list of the text placeholder (or text box), you can select the entire placeholder by clicking on the edge of the placeholder as shown in Figure 1.

  2. Access the Home tab of the Ribbon -- within the Paragraph group, click the arrow beside the Numbered List button (highlighted in red within Figure 2).

  3. This brings up the Numbered List gallery, as shown in Figure 3. The highlighted number style (second from top-left in Figure 3, below) is the current number style applied to your selected text.
