Have you ever pulled up an older file to edit it….and realized that you used ARIAL or Comic Sans….throughout various sections of the ENTIRE.DOCUMENT.??????
What an editing nightmare! Here’s an EASY and QUICK way to replace the font you don’t want with one you do want! 🙂
Keep in mind that sometimes the formatting gets off because the font you chose may be bigger than the previous font. In that case you may need to size down the font or choose a different font for the replacement! Hope this techy tip was helpful!
If you’re not creating your products using Powerpoint, I HIGHLY recommend trying it out! I love Powerpoint so much, in fact, that I even type up letters in it! LOL.
Did you know that the sky is the limit when it comes to the beautiful fonts available out there? You aren’t stuck with plain black text anymore. Your text can truly pop off the page! Here are a few tips. Please click on the pictures to view them larger! 🙂
1. Start with a font and type your text in the size you prefer. Click inside the text box, right click, and select “Edit Text.”
You’ll see 2 options: Shape Options (for formatting the text box itself) or Text Options (for formatting the Text). Be sure to choose Text Options! Then click on the “A with a line under it” which will lead you to Text Fill and Text Outline.
2. Highlight the text and click on “Text Fill” then “Picture or Texture Fill.” Then click “File.” You’ll go to your digital paper files and choose the one you want to fill the text with.
The text should immediately fill up with that digital paper.
You can also outline your letters by clicking on Text Outline and choosing your color and outline width.
You can fill your fonts with solid colors, too! The black outline can really make the letters pop!
I hope you learned something new! Powerpoint is AMAZING….try it out! I’ll be back with more Powerpoint tricks later!
