This chapter describes the different ways to add text to slides and format the text.

Text in slides is contained in text boxes.

There are two ways to add text boxes to a slide:

  • Choose a predefined layout from the Layouts section of the Tasks pane, as described in Chapter 1. These text boxes are called AutoLayout text boxes.
  • Create a text box using the text tool.

This chapter describes how to create, modify, use, and delete text boxes; discusses the various types of text that can be inserted; and explains how to format the text, how to insert a numbered or bulleted list. and finally how and when to use fields.
