Aligning Bulleted and Unbulleted Text

Say you have three bullet list items on a slide, all at the same outline level. You decide that the second item doesn’t really deserve a bullet, so you remove it. When you do that, you see that the text jumps to the left to line up with the bullet above. Not a pretty sight. How do you fix it?

To line up your text with the text above, click at the beginning of the unbulleted item and press Tab. The text will move to the right and line up neatly with the text above (and below).
