Aligning bullet points in PowerPoint

One of the PowerPoint annoyances is that bullet point paragraphs are not aligned properly when overflowing to the next line. It's easy to fix.
Display the ruler (view menu), select the text, and move the little markers, leaving the top one to the left, and the bottom one at the desired indent. (See the image to the right).
That bullet points are NOT the main design concept to make PowerPoint presentations is clear, but a completely separate subject.

Dear Jan:

OMG!!! Thank you so much! I've been a graphic artist for the last 10 years and managed to never touch a Microsoft anything. Recently signed a contract with the Navy that includes PPT's and have been close to ripping my hair out a few times trying to make it behave like InDesign. Bless you!

WOW, that was amazing! I've been trying to figure that little gem of knowledge out for years but never could- I always ended up adding extra spaces so they all matched.

Great work sweet cheeks!
