Product/Version: PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

OS: Windows 7 and higher






In PowerPoint, when you type text within a text or Content placeholder, the default result is that you end up creating 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 2016:

  1. 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).
  2. Entire placeholder with bulleted text selected
    Figure 1: Entire placeholder with bulleted text selected
  3. Access the Home tab of the Ribbon, and click the Numbering button, shown highlighted in blue within Figure 2.
  4. Numbering button
    Figure 2: Numbering button
  5. This changes the bulleted list to numbered list of the selected text, as shown in Figure 3 (compare Figures 1 and 3).
  6. Bulleted list changed to numbered list
    Figure 3: Bulleted list changed to numbered list
Tip: Did you want your numbered list in a different style? Maybe A, B, C, ... rather than 1, 2, 3 ...? Or, did you want some other numbered style? To do so, explore our Change the Numbered List Style in PowerPoint 2016 tutorial.

Pictures in Presentations

Is a picture is worth a thousand words? You probably have heard this adage so often that we decided not to repeat this phrase throughout this book! Now here’s some more info: the human brain uses a larger part of its area to store visual information rather than textual content. And that’s possibly because a picture describes so much more than text.
