Learn how to cut, copy, paste, and format text, including using a PowerPoint text box, for strong PowerPoint presentations.
You can also cut, copy, and paste by right-clicking your slide and choosing the desired action from the drop-down menu. When you use this method to paste, you can choose from four options that determine how the text will be formatted: Use Destination Theme, Keep Source Formatting, Picture, and Keep Text Only. You can hover the mouse over each icon to see what it will look like before you click it.
If text does not appear in the exact location you want, you can press the Enter key on your keyboard to move the text to a new line.
Find and Replace is another technique that can be used to edit text. Find and Replace allows you to search all of your slides for a specific word or phrase (English, for example), then replace it with another word or phrase (British, for example). To learn more, visit the Find and Replace lesson from our Word 2010 tutorial.
