Align Text
By default, PowerPoint centers most text in text boxes (bulleted lists are left-aligned). If you
want, you can use PowerPoint’s alignment commands, located on the Home tab, to change how
text is positioned horizontally in a text box. You can choose to center text in a text box (using the
Center command), align text to the right side of the text box (using the Right Align command), or
justify text and objects so they line up at both the left and right margins of the text box (using the
Justify command).
Align Text
1 Click in the text box containing
the text that you want to align.
2 Click the Home tab.
3 Click an alignment button:
Click the Align Left button (
)
to align the text to the left side
of the text box.
Click the Center button ( ) to
align the text in the center of the
text box.
Click the Align Right button ( )
to align the text to the right side
of the text box.
Click the Justify button ( ) to
justify text between the left and
right margins.
A PowerPoint applies the
formatting. In this example, the
text is centered between the left
and right margins of the text box.
You can click anywhere outside
the text box to continue working.
