I am inserting a text box in a chart in Excel for Mac and need help removing bullet points that automatically appear in the text box.  When I right-click (cntrl, click) for formatting options, bullets are shaded out.  I put a screen shot below.  Any suggestions?

@kwolt2021 On Excel for Mac myself. This is how it looks for me.

Bullet points are not automatically added in my case. What Excel version number are you on?

@Riny_van_Eekelen I have Office 365 ... wondering if it lacks the functionality of your version.

@kwolt2021 What is your Excel version?

This is mine.

Bu ti don't think it's version related.

@Riny_van_Eekelen 16.49 ... I put the screenshot below ...

 

@kwolt2021 Don't know. Sorry!
