Learn how to cut, copy, paste, and format text, including using a PowerPoint text box, for strong PowerPoint presentations.
As you create your presentation, you can add text boxes to help organize your slides. You'll also need to know how to format text to create the look you need.
Text can be inserted into both placeholders and text boxes. A placeholder is a kind of text box, but it's unique because it is part of the slide layout and often contains formatting specific to the slide (a larger font size for the title of your presentation, for example). Inserting an extra text box allows you to add to the slide layout so you can include as much text as you want.
To rotate the box, click and drag the green circle at the top of the box.
