Selecting Text

Before you can do anything to the text on your slides, you first have to select it. Text can appear in any of three places on a slide: in one of the title or subtitle placeholder text boxes that PowerPoint automatically adds to your slide, in a text box that you have added to a slide or in a shape that you have added to a slide.

Clicking the Home tab shows you your editing options, but you can not actually use any of them until you click inside a text box. When you do, PowerPoint activates the text editing options (except Paste and Clipboard, which remain grayed out until you cut or copy text, in other words, until you have something to paste from the Clipboard) and the Drawing Tools | Format tab appears.

To select text:

  1. Click anywhere in an existing text box, placeholder text box, or on a shape. PowerPoint highlights the outline of the text box you clicked in. In addition, PowerPoint displays the Drawing Tools/Format context tab and activates the text-related options in the Home tabunderlining, font size, alignment, and so on.

    When you click in a placeholder text box (one that says Click to add title or Click to add subtitle), PowerPoint erases the placeholder text. (Placeholder text does not appear in Slide Show view, nor does it appear when you run your slideshow, it is just there to remind you to type your own text.)

  2. Drag to select as much text as you like. Alternatively, you can press Shift and use the arrow keys (or click again). Or double-click to quickly select a single word. To select discontinuous words or phrases, press Ctrl while you select each word or phrase. Whichever method you use, PowerPointhighlights the text you select.
