CHAPTER 14

Populating Presentation Slides

Add and Edit Slide Text

All slide layouts except for the blank slide layout are designed to automatically hold some text. To help you enter text, PowerPoint includes a text box that contains placeholder text, such as “Click to add title,” “Click to add subtitle,” or “Click to add text.” You can replace the placeholder text with your own text by typing directly in the slide.

After you add your text, you can change its font, size, color, and more, as shown in the next section.
