Discover the power shortcuts the pros use to navigate PowerPoint 2010 with ease. Author Alicia Katz Pollock shows how to customize views, work with text, format slides, and publish your final presentation. The course also includes her top 10 tips for working with presentations, including autofitting text, creating custom bullets, and using shapes to mask images and video.
When you format your text on your slide, instead of in the slide master, when you press Enter to start a new bullet, then next slide will carry forward all of your formatting. If you don't want it to, instead of returning each setting individually back to normal, you can do all at once with Clear Formatting. Let's take a look at slide 6. In my Do Not column, my text is bold and teal. If I click at the end of it and hit Enter and type my next bullet point, it will maintain the same formatting. To change this back to normal, highlight it and then up in the middle of the home ribbon there is a button that says Clear All Formatting. And I will click on it and my text will go back to normal.
There is a second way to do the same thing. Go up to slide 4 and highlight the text label under the chart. In addition to using the Clear Formatting button, there is a keyboard command that I can use. Hold down your Ctrl key and tap the Spacebar, and your text will go back to its original unformatted appearance. Clear Formatting is crucial for turning your text back to normal saving you the effort of undoing each step one at a time.
