Identify how to format specii c elements of the text.
Most of the time, you use the document theme’s text attributes, color scheme, and layout.
Occasionally, you may want to change the way a presentation looks, however, and still keep
a particular document theme. PowerPoint gives you that l exibility.
Graphic designers use several rules when formatting text.
Avoid all capital letters, if possible. Audiences have difi culty comprehending sentences
typed in all capital letters, especially when the lines exceed seven words. All capital let-
ters leaves no room for emphasis or inl ection, so readers get confused about what
material deserves particular attention. Some document themes, however, have a default
title text style of all capital letters.
Avoid text with a font size less than 30 point. Audience members generally will sit a
maximum of 50 feet from a screen, and at this distance 30-point type is the smallest size
text they can read comfortably without straining.
Make careful color choices. Color evokes emotions, and a careless color choice may elicit
the incorrect psychological response. PowerPoint provides a color gallery with hundreds of
colors. The built-in document themes use complementary colors that work well together.
If you stray from these themes and add your own color choices, without a good reason
to make the changes, your presentation is apt to become ineffective.
