PowerPoint - Formatting

After I format texts within a text box in PowerPoint and peform a Copy/Cut and Paste function to rearrange bullets or bring in new next, the new texts still takes on "old" or "default" format.

How do I make sure that "my" formatting of text withn a text box does not revert to the "Default" format when peforming a copy and paste function and how do I disable the auto-resize function within a text box (Text changes size depending on the amount of text captured in a text box

Hello luckshmansoma,

1. rightclick on your textbox
2. choose the format placeholder object menu item
3. select the textbox tab
4. uncheck the box for "Word Wrap text in autoshape"
5. uncheck the box for "Resize Autoshape to fit text"
6. when you cut and paste text do not paste it but choose paste special from the Edit menu

hope this helps a bit
when you copy/cut and paste, there's a clipboard icon on the lower right. click on that and you should get a couple of options. try the one that say "keep source formatting". this also work in Word too
hope this help
