"PowerPoint Numbering - Formatting Numbered Lists in PowerPoint 2007"


PowerPoint Numbering is very similar to bullets except instead of using the same character for each item they use sequential numbers or letters. Use a numbered list whenever the order of the items is significant.

You can turn on or off the numbering for any paragraph(s) or text placeholder by selecting them and clicking the Numbering button on the Home tab (or the Edit Master tab if you're in Slide Master view) to toggle the bullet(s) on or off.

The numbers that you add to the slide can have different sizes and colors in relation to the rest of the paragraph text. Using a different size and/or color can also make the numbers stand out.


To add numbering to a list

  • Select the paragraph(s) text you wish to re-format as a numbered list.
  • On the Home tab, in the Paragraph group, click on the Numbering icon.
  • A list of different numbered styles displayed, select the numbering format that you wish.
  • Click on the OK button or press Enter.


To change a number size and color

  • Select the paragraph(s) text you wish to re-format as a numbered list.
  • On the Home tab, in the Paragraph group, click on down arrow to the right of the Numbering icon and click on the Bullets and Numbering button.
  • From the Bullets and Numbering dialog box displayed, if the Numbered tab is not displayed, click to select it.
