Hello Experts!

Hi I'm using Powerpoint 2007 in compatabily model (flexibly on that though).

I want to keep the same (more or less)  look as the attached file, but instead of having a text box for each bullet point, I want to use Powerpoints customised bullet point options.

I don't see any similar icons in the customise bullet point menu options.  I tried saving the dark blue and light blue pentagons and for some reason I could only import the dark blue one. Strange.

Is there a more straight forward way using smart art or something like that?

Many thanks for your help in advance!

You can do it in Powerpoint 2007....se attached ppt (eeppt-2) I created one txt box with the bullet types u want

you already have the custom bullet pics in your existing presentation
right-click on the bullet and save as a picture (see attached Picture1 and Picture2)

Then add these pics to your custom bullets....
create a standard bullet

Click on pull down arrow near std bullet icon
Select Bullets and Numbering
Click picture
Click Import
browse to wher the picture files are , select both
click Add

now you will see both your new custome bullets in the 'Picture Bullet' window....select the bullet u want and done eeppt-2.ppt Pic1 Pic2
