PowerPoint and indeed all Microsoft Office programs allow you to work with a particular object only if it is selected. For example, you select a shape to make changes to the shape. You similarly select a chart to edit the chart. And yes, you can select a text container object such as a text placeholder, a text box, or even a shape -- and then make changes to its position, formatting, size, etc. However, this changes the entire object -- and leaves the actual text content within that object largely unchanged. To make changes to the actual text, you first need to select the text separately and then make changes by using the options available within the Home tab of the Ribbon or the Mini Toolbar.
Do you want to add snowflakes to your slides, for the winter look? Do you want snowflakes that are already animated for you? Then you will love these Snowflakes for PowerPoint - this product includes both non-animated and animated snowflakes. These snowflakes are already within PowerPoint slides. Just copy the entire slide (with multiple snowflakes for the animated versions) or just single snowflakes (for the non-animated version - and then paste within your slides). You get 5 sets of snowflakes - four of them are of different styles, and the 5th one has snowflakes that are broken or melted! Combine snowflakes from all 5 sets to create something unique and special.
At some point of time, we all need dummy text to quickly add to our slides so that we can ascertain how a body of text looks or fits within a certain text box or placeholder. Microsoft introduced an undocumented feature in PowerPoint that enables you achieve this with just a few keystrokes, and once you are used to these shortcuts, you'll learn to appreciate this feature so much!
There are three types of text containers that PowerPoint provides: text placeholders, text boxes, and shapes -- all three text containers are sufficiently similar in their characteristics for layout options for the text contained inside them. In this tutorial, we will explore the alignment and text direction options for text within these text containers in PowerPoint 2013.
We begin with a bunch of Christmas stuff -- a Christmas PowerPoint kit and some animated slides that can be used for greeting cards. Then we bring you an exclusive conversation with Gerry Praysman, who discusses SlideShark's PDF Support options. We also have some Hanukkah themed clip art.

These Christmas themed clip arts for PowerPoint are all silhouettes that are ready to use within your PowerPoint presentation slides. The clip arts have been provided in black and white variations that are contained within two separate sample presentations that you download. Copy the graphics of your choice from the downloaded presentations, and paste them into your PowerPoint presentation slides. You can also paste them into a Word document, an Excel worksheet, or any other program.
In PowerPoint 2013 resizing text boxes is easy. You select any text box and you get eight handles, four on corners, and four on sides -- you then drag any of these eight handles to resize. The problem with this approach is that the resized text box you end up with is not accurate. If you do not need accuracy, then you need not follow the rest of this tutorial -- however there might be times when you need your text box sized exactly as the size of a picture you have inserted -- or even an exact size based on a specification.
With Adobe Presenter you can create scenario-based training slides that are easily customizable -- these scenario templates contain the complete question vs. answer flows. For example, if you select the Business scenario, the flow is pre-defined as one question with multiple options. You just need to select the number of options and select the correct answer number. When you publish these scenarios, the user views only the questions initially. The options within the scenario-based training are displayed logically. The user has to complete answering the question by selecting the right answer, otherwise the user cannot navigate to the next slide as the play bar and the side bar are locked.

Text boxes in PowerPoint need to be moved and resized within different areas of the slide. While you may think that selecting and resizing is all that is to be done, that's not the entire truth because there's so much more you can do even with mere resizing -- if you know that these options exist.

Have you seen that PowerPoint automatically reduces the size of your text when you type in too much text? Or does the text box itself increase in size when you type in a sentence or two more than what can fit into the text box? Does this automatic hand-holding by PowerPoint drive you crazy and want to hit your head on the wall? Well, you really don't have to worry because you can make PowerPoint behave itself -- and bend it to your will.
The Indezine Christmas Kit is a self-contained set of slides and other goodies that provides you with everything you need to create Christmas picture slides within PowerPoint.

Sometimes you want your text box to be placed in an exact position on your slide. Yes, you can select a text box and move it around by dragging it with your mouse, and then let it go wherever you want it placed. However, for all practical reasons this process is just visual and not accurate enough. Thankfully, PowerPoint provides a way to accurately position any text box just where you want it located.
