In PowerPoint lists make it easy for an audience to read what you're presenting. Learn about PowerPoint list level and other functions.
To create effective PowerPoint presentations, it's important to make your slides easy for the audience to read. One of the most common ways of doing this is to format the text as a bulleted or numbered list. By default, when you type text into a placeholder, a bullet is placed at the beginning of each paragraph—automatically creating a bulleted list. If you want, you can modify a list by choosing a different bullet style or by switching to a numbered list.

By default, numbered lists count from the number 1. However, sometimes you may want to start counting from a different number, like if the list is a continuation from a previous slide.
