Improving Bulletted Slides with Interactions

Hi all,

My .pptx source files are often laden w/boring bullets.  Where's the "convert-boring-bullets-to-lively-interactive-content" feature? :-) Even if not necessarily quick...anything to turn cheap bullets into golden opportunity...

Top-of-head, I think of making each bullet entry a button...or a hot spot. Then create triggers for each button/hot-spot to show a new layer, jump to slide(s), or reveal a lightbox.

Any "fire the bullet" ideas greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Steve

Tom's ideas and suggestions are excellent.

I have encountered a few instances when I have no other choice than to list things. I never use bullet points. Instead I know of Duarte Diagrammer where I can see/use many ways of presenting and organizing key points in a given slide. Again, that is in circumstances when I have no other choice but to list items.
