Quick Ways to Handle Case, or Capitalization
Changing the color of text
Before you change the color of text, peer at your computer screen and
examine the background theme or color you chose. Unless the color of the text is
different from the theme or color, you can’t read the text. Besides choosing a
color that contributes to the overall tone, choose a color that is easy to read.
Select the text that needs touching up and use one of these techniques to

Quick Ways to Handle Case, or Capitalization
Case refers to how letters are capitalized in words and sentences. Table 2-1
explains the different cases, and Figure 2-5 demonstrates why paying
attention to case matters. In the figure, the PowerPoint slide titles are presented
using different cases, and the titles are inconsistent with one another. In one
slide, only the first letter in the title is capitalized (sentence case); in another
slide, the first letter in each word is capitalized (capitalize each word); in
another, none of the letters is capitalized (lowercase); and in another, all the
letters are capitalized (uppercase). In your titles and headings, decide on a
capitalization scheme and stick with it for consistency’s sake.
