PowerPoint supports the font-formatting techniques you mastered in Word (see Chapter 6, "Formatting Characters, Paragraphs, and Pages") such as bold, italics, colors. In addition, you can select the font styles you want to use in your presentations.
Before you change any font attributes, you must first select the text that will be affected by the change. To change the font for a portion of text ”for example, just the one word you want in bold ”select just that one word. To change the font for an entire text object ”if you want the entire title a bit bigger, for instance ”select the text object.
