I have a powerpoint slideshow with a series of bullet points. I'd like to change it so that each bullet point appears on the next slide. What is the best way to do this?

Instead of copying/pasting, I'd like to have something like where each slide is defined as the one before it, plus something else. That way, if I make a change to one slide, everything downstream is automatically updated.

Or maybe I can do something with transitions where each bullet appears on hitting the arrow key?

I'm using Office 2010.

Are you talking about building text on a slide one bullet at a time?

From the article:

  1. Click the Slides tab and select the slide you want.
  2. On the Slide Show menu click Animation Schemes.
  3. In the Slide Design task pane, under Apply to selected slides, click an animation scheme such as Fade in one by one, Wipe, or Dissolve in, in the list.
  4. Click Play button to review your animation.

I believe that there's a "animate on mouseclick" or something in that pane, I do not have powerpoint presently installed.
