How to turn on or off automatic bullets or numbering in Powerpoint 2007

Posted on May 18, 2009. Filed under: Powerpoint Tips | Tags: , |

Do you find it annoying when you press an Enter then automatically, a bullet or a number appears in front of the next line. But actually you don’t need it at all. Or sometimes, you want to get it work to save your time.  Here is a the tip for you.

By default, if you type an asterisk or a number 1., Word recognizes that you are trying to start a bulleted or numbered list. You can turn off the automatic list recognition feature.

Note If you turn the feature off and create your list manually, you can’t select and change the list all at once. For example, you can’t select the list and change the color of all of the numbers at one time.

  1. Click the Microsoft Office Button Button image, and then click Word Options.
  2. Click Proofing.
  3. Click AutoCorrect Options, and then click the AutoFormat As You Type tab.
  4. Under Apply as you type, select or clear the Automatic bulleted lists check box or the Automatic numbered lists check box.
