Working with data-driven templates
Why does the text come in with bullets?
The text in the data-driven templates will assume the default settings for text in your presentation master. PowerFrameworks advocates for the top level of text in all masters be set for nonbulleted, left-aligned text, followed by bulleted, indented text levels/hierarchies.
You have probably already experienced this problem when you import pages from other documents. You should consider changing the text defaul in the master.
