Add text to a shape or a text box in Slides Windows

Shapes such as rectangles, speech balloons, and block arrows can contain text. When you type text into a shape, the text attaches to the shape and moves and rotates with it.

  • To add text that becomes part of a shape, select the shape, and then type or paste the text.

To format your text,

  1. Select the text, then

  2. On the ribbon, select an option, or
    right-click for font properties and paragraph properties. 

You can add a bulleted or a numered list to the shape. 

  • On the ribbon, select a Bullets or Numbering option. 
    You can find different bullet styles and numbering formats by clicking the down arrow next to Bullets or Numbering.
