I have rarely used Presentation, but I'm starting to use it more.

That's probably "presentations" or "Impress".

When I want to step through several bulleted items in a slide, I typically create the first slide with one bullet, and then create a duplicate slide and add the new bulleted item to the previous one. I create as many duplicate slides as I have bullets. I'm wondering if there is another way to do this without the need to create several slides. If I have 6 bullets, that means creating six slides to get the stepping effect through the bullets.

Indeed. And you end up - undesirably - with six slides instead of one in both your notes and your handout.

What I'd like to do is create one slide with all six bullets, and then tell LO to step through them during my presentation. Is there a way to do this?

Surely yes.

o Create your bulleted list of six items.
o Click Custom Animation in the sidebar.
o Let's assume that you want the first item to appear with the main part of the slide. Select the second item.
o Click Add... .
o Select the mode of entrance.
o Ensure that under Effect, Start is set as "On click".
o Adjust other options as desired.
o Repeat for the other four items, ensuring that they appear in the appropriate order in the Custom Animation panel.

In the slide show, one click will now bring up the new slide with its first bulleted item, the next five clicks will add additional items, and the next click will proceed to the next slide - as you would expect.

I trust this helps.
