PowerPoint - Adding Text to Slides

In PowerPoint, you can add text to your PowerPoint slides with text boxes and shapes.



Add a text box

  1. Select Insert > Text Box.

  2. On the slide, select and drag where you'd like to put your object and start typing into it.

    Note: The text box will shrink to fit the size of the text you're using, but its eventual height and width will wrap to the size you created.

Add text to a shape

  1. Select Insert > Shapes, and then select your shape.

    Note: To add text to a shape, you must select a closed shape, such as a rectangle, arrow, or circle.

  2. Select and drag where you'd like to put your object and start typing into it.
