Quickly move bullet points from one PowerPoint slide to another

In PowerPoint's Outline pane, you can easily drag bulleted text to a different slide.

PowerPoint's Outline pane displays most of a presentation's content. Anything you add to a text box — titles and bullet points for instance — will show up in the Outline pane. Now, you probably know that you can rearrange slides in Outline view by simply clicking the Move Up and Move Down buttons on the Outlining toolbar. What you might not know is that you can also move text and bullet points from slide to slide. Simply highlight the text or bullet. Then, click and drag. It couldn't be simpler! It's an easy fix when the message just doesn't flow right.
