After covering the concept of differences between text placeholders and text boxes using Windows versions of PowerPoint, I heard from some Indezine readers who wanted a similar tutorial for Mac versions of PowerPoint. The concept works in exactly the same way on the Mac, with these observations: Aren’t text boxes and text placeholders the same? Are they really different? And why should I bother even if they are different? All these are valid questions, and the answers to them form one of the most important foundations in learning to create more structured presentations in PowerPoint.
