Making Changes to Slide Text Content
Replacing Text in an Existing Slide
When you need to correct a word or phrase, you can replace the text by selecting
the text to be replaced and then typing the new text. As soon as you press any key on the
keyboard, the selected text is deleted and the new text is displayed.
PowerPoint inserts text to the left of the insertion point. The text to the right of the
insertion point moves to the right (and shifts downward if necessary) to accommodate the
added text.
Deleting Text
You can delete text using one of three methods. One is to use the backspace key to
remove text just typed. The second is to position the insertion point to the left of the text
you want to delete and then press the delete key. The third method is to drag through
the text you want to delete and then press the delete or backspace key. Use the third
method when deleting large sections of text.
To Delete Text in a Placeholder
To keep the ending slide clean and simple, you want to delete a few words in the slide show title and subtitle
text. The following steps change It Is Easy Being Green to Be Green and then change Saving Energy at Home to
