Bullets are common in PowerPoint presentations, and sometimes you want to customize the bullets to look just right. PowerPoint gives you a lot of control by aligning and adjusting the text for a bullet point. And so it goes.
Align the bulleted text horizontally in its text box
First, open your PowerPoint presentation and go to the slide that contains the bulleted text. Select the text in the bullet that you want to customize.
The Home tab displays four different targeting options – the same ones you use to align normal text.
From left to right, these options are:
- Align Left (Ctrl + L)
- Center (Ctrl + E)
- Align Right (Ctrl + R)
- Justify (Ctrl + R) + J)
Hovering over each option gives you the orientation type, keyboard shortcut, and orientation description.
Select the desired alignment option. In this example we choose "centering".
Now the highlighted text center is displayed in the text field.

Horizontally align bulleted text by fitting the indent
Another method to align bulleted text is using the ruler function at DE to customize the bullet and the following text. To use this feature, you must first activate the ruler by going to the View tab and selecting the Ruler check box.

We will use the same text.
When you select the text, three indent marks appear on the ruler displayed:
- First line indent: This is the top marker (the triangle pointing down), and you can use it to adjust the position of the enumerated graphic itself.
- Hanging End indent: This is the middle marker (the up-facing triangle), and you can use it to adjust the position of the text.
- Left indent: This is the bottom marker (the rectangle) that lets you adjust the position of bullets and text at the same time.
Align bulleted text vertically in its text box  To the right of the regular targeting options, you'll see the Align Text button, which lets you align text vertically. This affects all the text in the box, so you can not set different bullets individually.
Click Align Text You can access various options and, of course, explore some of the additional options, including orientation and text rotation, by choosing More Options.
Follow these simple rules and you can point out certain points by using text and bullets.
