Chapter 24. Adding Graphics and Other Fl... > Using Special Text Formatting

Using Special Text Formatting

Text formatting works the same in PowerPoint as in other Office applications. To change the format of text, you simply select it and then select Format, Font. You select the font, style, size, and color, as well as any effects, and then you click OK to change the text style. In addition, you can change the alignment of a line by placing the cursor on the line and selecting Format, Alignment and then selecting the appropriate option. Finally, you can select Format, Line Spacing to open the Line Spacing dialog box, where you can set the spacing between lines as well as the spacing preceding and following a paragraph.

The Absolute Minimum

This chapter covers some of the rather advanced features in Microsoft PowerPoint that haven’t been covered until now. These include the addition of tables, pictures, videos, sounds, animation, table of contents or summary slides, and advanced text formatting. These extra components, used sparingly, can spice up a presentation, make it more aesthetically pleasing, and make it more interesting to the audience.

In the next chapter you will learn how to add notes to a presentation, create handouts, package a presentation on a CD, print a presentation, and present a slideshow. Using these features, you can create handouts for your audience and a set of annotated printed slides for your use during the presentation. You’ll also learn how to use the presentation tools so you can give a more effective presentation.
