You know how PowerPoint is perfectly formatted for making a presentation, in terms of the page size, default orientation, and bulleting? Well, that's all fine & dandy until you want to do something beyond the usual.
For example, for this assignment I included a list of the Ontario drama expectations we were meeting.
But then, what happens when I add in a new section and decide I want two "lists" or groupings instead of soooo many bullet points?
When I go to turn off the bullets...
... the alignment gets all wonky.
So here's how to fix that! First, if you cannot already see the ruler bar (indicated by the blue arrow in this image below) then you need to turn it on. To do that, click View, and then click the checkbox beside Ruler to activate this feature.
Note: I don't think this option exists at all within Office 365 if you're using that version, but it does (with minor appearance changes) in all previous versions of PowerPoint.
