You may want to create a slide, showing the stages in a process, which will look better if not in a straightforward bulleted list. To start with, select the bulleted list from which to create the diagram.
On the Home tab, in the Paragraph group, click Convert to SmartArt Graphic.
From the dropdown, select an appropriate graphic for the bulleted list, or click More SmartArt Graphics, in which case the Choose a SmartArt Graphic dialog box opens.
Click on an option in the middle section to see what effect it produces in the right section. Select a suitable graphic, then click OK.
The diagram is displayed on the slide and the SmartArt Tools Design tab is uppermost, allowing styles and colours to be changed.
