Adding Text

You've done your homework and now it's time to show it off.  Read on to learn how to integrate your text content into your presentation. 

Adding Text

  1. Click Text at the top of the editor.


  2. Select your desired text style. There are always three carefully selected style choices for each template that contain different fonts, colors or sizes. These are labeled Title, Sub Title and Text. Once selected, a text box will be added to the slide. You can always change the font, color and size of your text.

  3. Start typing in your new text and it will override the default text. 


Editing Text

With the Text toolbar you can edit the text and change the text color, size, and add effects etc.  Select the text.  The Text toolbar will drop down from the top of the slide.
