AutoFit title text to placeholder applies only to the title text placeholders in your presentations.
AutoFit body text to placeholder applies to the non-title text placeholders in your presentations.
A checked box means that a particular AutoFit feature is turned on, so uncheck a box to turn the feature off.
Click OK when you’ve made your choices.
Now, assuming you’ve left the AutoFit features on, let’s take a look at the way you can control it, text placeholder by text placeholder.
When the AutoFit feature takes over and makes a font size change, you should see the AutoFit Options button appear on the left side of the text box.
If you’ve already clicked out of the text and don’t see this button, click back into the text and it should appear.
Click the button and a short menu will open.
Basically, you have two options and a shortcut to the AutoCorrect window.
The first two items are your choices for this particular text placeholder. You can either let AutoFit do its job here or stop it.
The last item in the menu will take you immediately to the AutoCorrect window where you can choose to turn this feature off at the program level.
That’s it. Simply choose to Stop fitting text to the placeholder and you will see the text go back to the original font size.
Change your mind?
No problem. The button is still available and you can choose to turn it back on at a later time.
There you have it. Downsizing PowerPoint text has been demystified!
