Move Text on a Slide
With a presentation open in PowerPoint, click a slide in
the Slides tab to place a slide in the Slides pane.
Click the cursor inside a text placeholder.
Move the cursor to the placeholder border so that it
changes from an I-beam to a double-crossed arrow and
then click the border (see Figure 4-2).
Drag the placeholder to a new position.
Note that when you move a text placeholder, the placeholder moves
only on the slide in view. All other text placeholders remain in the
positions established on the master slide.
