Apply This Trick and Your Slides Will Look INSTANTLY More Interesting and Engaging
The trick I am about to share with you is so cool and so simple you'll be kicking yourself for not having known about it sooner.
It uses a feature of PowerPoint that 99% of people do not use: your ability to break up text boxes.
Let me explain.
You probably use PowerPoint text boxes in the same way you use Word.
You click on the text box and type in your text, right?
But PowerPoint gives you much more flexibility and creative freedom with text boxes because you can break up your text in multiple boxes, vary the fonts and text size and rearrange them EXACTLY how you want them.
Here’s what I mean.
The idea is to follow the principle of visual hierarchy (which I talk about here) to create text displays that turn plain text into visually exciting and memorable slides.
And here’s how you do it, IN THREE EASY STEPS:
STEP 1: Start with a regular sentence stating a fact or statistics. Identify the keywords or key numbers you need to highlight.
STEP 2: Break up your text box into multiple text boxes.
STEP 3: Change the font style for the keywords (larger, bolder, more prominent) and rearrange the text boxes for a clean balanced look.
Add a little color and voila!
Isn’t it amazing what you can do with text boxes and fonts when you learn tricks like these?
