Shapes Instead of Bullets in PowerPoint

When you put together your PowerPoint presentations do you find that you’re bored with the same old bulleted list time after time?

(Just as a reminder, to get text into your shapes first draw the shape of your choice then right-click on it and choose Add Text.)
