Keep the same formatting on slides by copying and pasting.

If you create a slide in PowerPoint with bullet points and you want to keep the same slide format, you can carry over the bullet points to other slides by using PowerPoint's copy-and-paste slides feature. When you copy and paste, the new slides will keep all the formatting of the original slide, including the bullet points you want to carry over.
