Add a Text Box to a Slide
Add a Text Box to a Slide
Typically, you insert slides containing a predefined layout. You can customize the slide layout,
however, by adding a new text box to it. A text box is simply a receptacle for text in a slide. (For
help adding text to a text box, refer to the section “Add and Edit Slide Text,” earlier in this chapter.)
When you add a new text box to a slide, you can control the placement and size of the box. (For help
moving and resizing text boxes and other slide objects, see the sections “Move a Slide Object” and
“Resize a Slide Object,” later in this chapter.)
