Join David Diskin for an in-depth discussion in this video Enhancing text boxes, part of PowerPoint Tips and Tricks for Business Presentations.
Although we prefer pictures and charts, we can't always avoid text.…So we need to make the best of it whenever we can.…Take our second slide as an example, Today's Topics.…I want to clean this up in just a couple of ways.…Let's start by adding some tabs.…You might recall that from Microsoft Word, we use tabs to align text in a…vertical way down the page.…We can do the same thing in a PowerPoint slide.…I am going to click here where the space is and replace it with a tab.…I'll use the Tab key on my keyboard for that.…
I'll do the same thing here, here, and here.…It may not look like it, but most of these are now lined up right here at the 2-inch mark.…Fulfillment doesn't quite work because it sticks out;…it's actually lined up at 3-inch mark, but we'll fix all of this in just a second.…I am going to select all four bullets and bring my mouse here to the ruler right…about at the 2.5-inch mark.…As a quick side note,…if your version of PowerPoint doesn't currently show the ruler, you can turn it…on by clicking View and then Ruler.…
