- WEEK 4: WordArt, Shapes And Text Boxes
- Additional Tips A text box is a moveable, resizable container for text or graphics. In PowerPoint, text boxes are particularly useful when you need to insert and position text outside of existing placeholders. After clicking the Text Box button in the Text group of the Insert tab, you can drag the mouse across the screen to define the dimensions for the text box. Or, you can simply click the slide to insert a text box with default dimensions. Using the options on the Drawing Tools Format tab, you can apply a style, fill, outline, or effect to the selected text box. Difficult Concept:
Insert and format text boxes. Comments are a very useful tool when collaborating on a presentation. In PowerPoint 2013, you can reply to comments, discuss specific items, and even contact people. Also, you’ll notice that comments are now associated with the people who made them and contain contact tools that facilitate the communication process. You can use the Comments pane to browse for and respond to comments. The Comments pane is accessible via the Comments button on the status bar as well as the Comments group on the Review tab. Finally, you can choose to display comments as markup balloons and / or in the Comments pane. By default, PowerPoint shows comments as markup.
View and respond to comments.
