PowerPoint Text Tips

  • You can enter and edit text both on the Outline tab or directly on a slide, depending on which is most efficient at any particular time.
  • Text in placeholders provides consistency across an entire presentation. But you are not limited to using placeholders. You can place text wherever you want it on a slide by using text boxes.
  • PowerPoint provides assistance by correcting common spelling errors and adjusting the size of text so that it fits optimally on a slide.
  • You can take advantage of the Find and Replace features to ensure consistent use of terms and fonts throughout a presentation.
  • Although PowerPoint provides the structure for a presentation so that you can focus on your message, you can manually change the formatting, location, and size of text at any time.
