How can I move the bullet closer to the text in Powerpoint 2007?

I want the gap to be half of what it is by default.

The amount of space between the bullet and the text is controlled by the indents setting. Make sure the Ruler is displayed (View > Show/Hide Ruler). Drag the right indent marker (the triangle) to the left to decrease the hanging indent.
