Introduction to Objects in PowerPoint
You have previously learned to add text boxes, headers, and footers to Word documents. You can also add these objects and more to PowerPoint presentations.
- Insert text boxes.
Another type of edit you may wish to perform on a presentation slide is to add a text box. Text boxes are used for emphasis or as supplements to the standard layout space. For example, perhaps you want to draw attention to a specific feature on an image or in data. An easy way to do this is with a text box.
- Select the slide you wish to edit with a text box.
- Click on the Insert Tab
- Select Text Box from the menu in the Text group of the ribbon
- Click on the slide to place your text box.
- Enter your text.
After placing your text box, you can move it by clicking on the text box and dragging it to a new location. On the screenshot below the text box has been moved to the left side of the table, from the right.
