Hi Experts,
Is it possible to define a bullet list style so that I can repeatedly apply the style (i.e. preferred bullet character and sequence of indenting) in MS PowerPoint 2010?
My preference would be to be able to apply this at will to text boxes and tables in PPT.
Many Thanks

Not really.

You can specify your settings in the placeholder on the slide master, and any text placeholders will use this by default. But it won't work on manual textboxes or things like tables.

You could use the Pick Up Style and Apply Style (often referred to as "the eyedropper tools") for that. Add them to your Quick Access Toolbar. They work much like Format Painter, but they maintain the style you've picked up until you pick up another.
