Adding and Formatting Text
Often the easiest way to add text to a slide is to type directly into any placeholder on the slide. When you want to add text outside a placeholder or shape to add captions or callouts to your graphics you can use the Text Box on the Drawing toolbar. To add text that doesn't wrap, such as a caption, click the tool, click where you want to add the text, and start typing. To add text that does wrap, click the tool and drag to where you want to add text then start typing.
