I am preparing a powerpoint presentation. I would like the bulletpoint on the slide to come up one at a time.

I want to see the blank slide on the screen
(click)
See the first bullet point
(click)
See the first and second bullet point
(click)
etc...

How can I do this?

Slides that build: cascading bullets

Like many PowerPoint slide shows, this one included five or six bullet points on each slide. The speaker wanted the bulleted text items to appear one at a time as she described them, rather than all at once. In this way, the flow of the logic would be easier for the audience to follow.

To accomplish this result easily, create each slide as a Bulleted List slide, using Insert --> Slide from the menubar, and then choosing Bulleted List from the New Slide dialog box. Enter the title and the bullet points for each slide as usual. Then, to make them appear one at a time, you must set the master text box to appear a line at a time. Here's how:

Choose View --> Master --> Slide master from the menubar, to see the Slide Master.
Select the big text box (where the bullets live) by clicking its edge.
Choose Slide Show --> Animations --> Appear from the menubar.
To see the results, choose Slide Show --> View show from the menubar. As you click, the lines of bulleted text will appear one at a time.
