Sizing a Text Box
You can also set the size of a text box from the Size and Position task pane:
1. Click the dialog box launcher in the Size group on the Drawing Tools Format
tab, as shown in Figure 3.12. The Format Shape task pane opens with the Size
options displayed. See Figure 3.13.
You can adjust the size of the text box from the Size controls in the
Format Shape task pane.
2. Set the height and width for the text box in the Height and Width boxes,
To keep the size proportional, select the Lock Aspect Ratio check box in the Scale
section before you start adjusting the height or width.
3. (Optional) Click the Close (X) button in the upper right corner of the task pane
to close it.
Task panes are non-modal . This means that you can leave them open and continue to work on your presentation. It
also means that any changes that you make are applied immediately; there is no OK button to accept your changes or
Cancel button to reverse them. To reverse a change, you can use the Undo command (Ctrl+Z).
