PowerPoint 2013 enables you to use its repertoire of Shapes to create some amazing artwork. Its Merge Shape commands allow you to create complex shapes by merging several simple shapes. Additionally, these options also let you convert your text to shapes so that you can see the text even on a computer that does not have a particular font installed. We already showed you how you can convert an entire text box to one shape using the Intersect command. However, if you want your resultant shapes to be individual for each character, then you will need to use the Fragment option, as explained in this tutorial.
