You can add bulleted and numbered lists in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac presentations, and you can customize the style, color, and size of the bullets or numbers. You can also change the number that you want to start from, increase or decrease indents, and increase or decrease spacing between a bullet or number and its text.
PowerPoint does not support multilevel lists, but you can add indented lists within lists.
Insert a bulleted or numbered list
On the View tab, click Normal.
Click in the text box or placeholder where you want to add bulleted or numbered text.
On the Home tab, in the Paragraph group, click Bullets or Numbering , and begin typing your list. Press Return to create a new list item.
Or, select lines of text that are already on your slide, and then click Bullets or Numbering to format that text as a list.
Change the look of a bullet or number
To change one bullet or number, place the cursor at the start of the line that you want to change. To change multiple bullets or numbers, select the text in all of the bullets or numbers that you want to change.
