Chapter 3: Entering the Text
In This Chapter
Entering and changing the font, size, and color of text
Creating text boxes and text box shapes
Handling overflow text in text boxes and frames
Aligning the text in text boxes and text frames
Creating bulleted and numbered lists
Placing footers and headers on slides
This chapter explains how to change the appearance of text, create text
boxes, and create text box shapes. I solve the riddle of what to do when
text doesn’t fit in a text box or text placeholder frame. You also discover
how to align text, handle bulleted and numbered lists, and put footers and
headers on all or some of the slides in your presentation.
By the time you finish reading this chapter, if you read it all the way through,
you will be one of those people others turn to when they have a PowerPoint
question about entering text on slides. You’ll become a little guru in your own
right.
Entering Text
No presentation is complete without a word or two, which is why the first
thing you see when you add a new slide to a presentation are the words ”Click
to add text .” As soon as you “click,” those words of instruction disappear,
and you’re free to enter a title or text of your own. Most slides include a text
placeholder frame at the top for entering a slide title; many slides also have
another, larger text placeholder frame for entering a bulleted list.
As shown in Figure 3-1, the easiest way to enter text on slides is to click
in a text placeholder frame and start typing. The other way is to switch to
Outline view and enter text in the Slides pane (see Figure 3-1).
