Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Resize Text Boxes Accurately on a Slide

Created: Monday, December 22, 2014, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 3:45 am

In PowerPoint 2013 resizing text boxes is easy. You select any text box and you get eight handles, four on corners, and four on sides — you then drag any of these eight handles to resize. The problem with this approach is that the resized text box you end up with is not accurate. If you do not need accuracy, then you need not follow the rest of this tutorial — however there might be times when you need your text box sized exactly as the size of a picture you have inserted — or even an exact size based on a specification.

Learn how to resize text boxes accurately on a slide in PowerPoint 2013.
