Increase or decrease the font size of text in your slides, and you’ll discover that not only does this make a difference in the aesthetics of your slide, but the text itself uses more or less space than you may want. Sometimes, you may want they text to take just a wee bit lesser space so that all content can fit within two lines rather than three. If you would like to alter the spacing between text characters, you can do so by using PowerPoint 2010’s Character Spacing option, that affects the appearance and readability of both title and body text. Character Spacing is the amount of space in-between individual letters. You can easily adjust this spacing for a cleaner look or to make more or less text fit within any text object. Let us now explore how you can choose different Character Spacing options for the selected text on your slide.
