I have a small but annoying problem with Powerpoint 2007. In the original, where there are bulletted lists (with each item in a list being more than one line long), the bullet points all stand on the left while all the text next to them is slightly indented. When I overtype in the course of translating, the text (after the first line of an item) goes right over to the left, so that it is directly below the bullet point rather than indented to the right of it. I seem to have explored all the paragraph formatting options (hanging paragraphs etc.) but can't find the setting that will indent all the text beside a bullet point. Can anyone tell me what I should be doing?

If you don't see it, choose "View" and check the appropriate box (toolbars).
Hope it works now!

Thanks, ibz - that works really well (and I would never have discovered it by myself!).
