Sometimes you want your Text Box to be placed in an exact position on your slide. Yes, you can select a Text Box and move it around by dragging it with your mouse, and then let it go wherever you want it placed. However, for all practical reasons this process is just visual and not accurate enough. Thankfully, PowerPoint provides a way to accurately position any Text Box just where you want it located — having said that, do not move your text boxes until they contain all the text content you need within them, or you may find that your Text Boxes resize when you add text to them! Of course, you can control this behavior using the Autofit option we explained to you in a separate tutorial.

Learn how to reposition your Text Boxes accurately on a slide in PowerPoint 2016.
