Typing into PowerPoint during the Presentation

I’m using Office 2010.  I can’t believe no one noticed when I did this during the live presentation.

Here is the link to the tutorial I used: InternetClassroom.com. I’m not sure which version of PowerPoint they are using, but below are the 2010 instruction.

  1. Make a new slide where you want this feature to come in
  2. Under “Developer” in the section “Controls” you will see the text box feature
  3. Add into the slide whatever size you want, wherever you want.
  4. You can adjust it later by clicking in the box. The edit features will turn on



NOTE: While you are typing in presentation mode, in order to go to the next line, you must press the Shift key at the same time as the Return (or Enter) key.

That’s it.  I’d say “amaze your co-workers”, but mine didn’t even notice I’d done anything out of the norm of our usual presentations.
