You can align lower-level bullets with the left margin of text formattedfor the previous indentation level. This article describes how to do thisbecause this procedure is not documented in Microsoft PowerPoint Help.
To align bullets with the left edge of previous levels of text, like thisexample
   Indentation level 1 text   *   Indentation level 2 text (asterisks represent bullets)       *   Indentation level 3 text				
follow these steps:
  1. Select the text box that contains the indented text.
  2. On the View menu, click Ruler.

    This displays the indent markers for all indent levels.
  3. Press the CONTROL key and click the top triangle of the level whose bullet you want to align with the text above.
  4. Hold down the CONTROL key and drag the triangle until it aligns with the bottom triangle of the previous indentation level.
Your bullets should now line up with text formatted for the previouslevel of indentation.

For each indent marker, the top triangle controls the first line oftext indented to that level. The bottom triangle controls allsubsequent lines of text indented to that level.
