Although PowerPoint does include options to use pictures, SmartArt, charts, sounds, and even video clips, I yet have to see a presentation that had no text at all. Nothing conveys a message better than text, and even pictures do need captions in the form of text. In PowerPoint, several slide objects can include text — these include text placeholders, text boxes, shapes, tables, SmartArt, charts, etc. In this tutorial though, we are only exploring selecting and editing text within text placeholders, text boxes, and shapes.
