Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding text to a shape, part of PowerPoint for Mac 2011 Essential Training.
When you insert a text box, automatically you have a rectangle that allows you…to type the text inside.…The rectangle itself really doesn't have any properties:…There is no border visible. There is no fill.…It's just a standard text box.…But you can actually add text to any shape that you insert into a slide, and…that's we're going to do now.…We're still working with our Orientation presentation that we started in…the previous lesson.…Here on this blank slide, we typed in some text,…but it might look better if it were inside something a little more…interesting, such as a shape.…
With the Home tab selected on the Ribbon, you'll notice, in the Insert group, you…do have a Shape button.…When you click this, you're going to see a list of groups.…As you move down through those groups, such as rectangles, you'll see different…types of rectangles to choose from,…basic shapes as well.…Then we get down to block arrows, equations, and so on.…Let's go all the way down to Stars and Banners.…We'll choose one of the banners here.…
