Adding Text to Shapes in PowerPoint 2010 - Microsoft Powerpoint

How to add test to shapes in PowerPoint 2010?

Treating the shapes as text boxes is one of the great features of PowerPoint and it becomes useful when you want to type some text within a shape and ensure the text does not overflow the boundaries of the shape. By being able to enter text within the shape, PowerPoint will ensure that the text stays contained and you don’t have to worry about fixing it.

Below steps will help you add text to the shapes in PowerPoint.

Step 1 − Right-click on the shape to which you want to add the text and select the Edit Text option.


Step 2 − Start typing the text into the shape. Once you are done, click the cursor anywhere outside the shape.


An alternative way of adding text to shape is to select the shape and start typing directly. Once text is present within the shape, you can format the text using the font related features available in PowerPoint.
