Convert Text to Shape by Intersecting

Convert Text to Shape by Intersecting in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

PowerPoint has several features that may amaze you, but there's nothing quite like what we will explore on this page: an option to convert regular text into a shape. First of all, this is an undocumented feature. And then, this is such an utterly useful option. For example, you can now easily create logos in PowerPoint without using any other application. Or use a fancy font and then share that presentation with others in the knowledge that recipients can see the font exactly as intended, even if it's not installed on their computers.

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.
