The appearance of text makes a huge difference to any presentation. The font typeface used in your slides is dictated by the active Theme or Theme Fonts set of your presentation — you can certainly override these defaults and choose another font typeface and also change the font size. However, there are times when you need to highlight a word or a phrase contained within your text so that it stands apart and commands attention. To do so, you can apply font styling options that let you make your text bold, italics, underlined, etc. Often, slide titles in PowerPoint are formatted bold to attract attention; italicized text is mainly used to add emphasis or to mark foreign words. And you can underline text, add shadows, and even strike through any selected text. Read more to learn more about these font styles.

Learn about applying various font styles such as bold, italics, underline, etc. to format fonts in PowerPoint 2010.
