Chapter 4. Working with Text

This chapter shows you how to use text and text effects to enhance your presentation.

Adding and formatting text is a straightforward process in PowerPoint. If the standard formatting isn’t enough, however, PowerPoint also offers sophisticated text formatting and customization. In addition, it automates many formatting tasks if you’re in a hurry or have limited design skills.

In this chapter, you learn how to add and format text, text boxes, bullets, numbered lists, and WordArt, and spell check the text in your presentation. You can also listen to advice on the best way to format text for maximum impact and watch videos that show you how to insert a text box, create and format WordArt, and run a spelling check.
