    PowerPoint question: When working on presentations and using bullet points, after re-using or changing a text box, there is often more that one set of indents in the ruler bar. I cannot figure how to get rid of the extra sets, which do cause issues. With tabs, you just grab the little symbol and pull it off the ruler bar and they are gone. I don't see anything in the help system that talks about adding or deleting indents.

    Help suggests looking in the Format|Paragraph section, but this really applies to Word since there is no such section in PowerPoint.

    Hi rmccafferty,
    Probably the easiest way to do it is to use decrease indent. Click in the text box for the line you want to decrease and click the decrease indent button. I'm not sure how to describe what it looks like but it's right next to the decrease font size button. If you hover over your toolbar buttons, it should give you the description. When you click it, the indent that you are trying to delete should disappear. Hope that helps and that it's not as confusing as it feels to me!
