Working with Dialog Boxes and Panes
PowerPoint sometimes uses dialog boxes to prompt you for more information. When you
issue a command that can have many possible variations, a dialog box appears so you can
specify the particulars.
Figure 1.16 illustrates some of the controls you may encounter in PowerPoint’s dialog boxes:
Check box. These are individual on/off switches for particular features. Click to
toggle them on or off.
Increment buttons. Placed next to a text box, these buttons allow you to incre-
ment the number in the box up or down by one digit per click. For example, the
Size text box has increment buttons in Figure 1.16.
Drop-down list. Click the down arrow next to one of these to open the list, and
then click your selection from the menu that appears. For example, the Latin text
font setting has a drop-down list.
