Fun with Text Boxes and Text Box Shapes
Text Outline: Change the text outline — the outermost lines that
form the letters and numbers. Try this: Under Text Fill, choose the
No Fill option, and then choose a solid line as the text outline (refer
to Figure 3-2).
Text Effects: Give the letters and numbers a shadow, a glow, a softer
edge, or another dimension. Before you experiment with these
commands, try choosing an option on the Presets menu. Preset options
demonstrate what these text effects can do and give you a head start
in fashioning a text effect.

commands
for changing
the look of
text.
Before you change the look of text, peer into your computer screen and
examine the background theme or color you selected for your slides. Unless
the text is a different color from the background, the audience can’t read the
text. As you experiment with changing the look of text, make sure that your
audience can still read the text.
Fun with Text Boxes and Text Box Shapes
Text boxes give you an opportunity to exercise your creativity. They add
another element to slides. Use them to position text wherever you want,
annotate a chart or equation, or place an announcement on a slide. You can
even create a vertical text box in which the text reads from top to bottom
instead of left to right, or turn a text box into a circle, arrow, or other shape.
Figure 3-3 shows examples of text boxes and text box shapes.
