Powerpoint and artistic caption box

Hi!

The other day I watched a nice Powerpoint presentation. What attracted my attention most was the artistic captions (text in a cloud-shaped box or a bubble shaped box).  The presentor was so busy that I did not want to bother him with a question.
I thought that he might have used a plugin or a commercial (or free) tool.

I will truly appreciate if you experts may kindly give me a tip.

Thanks!

You can use "AutoShapes" tool to do the same.
Go to View>Toolbars and see if there is a check mark next to "Drawing". Click on Drawing if there is no check mark there. You will find a button called "AutoShapes" in the bottom. Click on that and select "Callouts" and you will find the cloud like shape. Select it from there and draw it on your presentation.
Good Luck!

Thank you so much for your kind response.

In Powerpoint 2003, I could locate AutoShapes by Insert > Picture > Autoshapes.

But because you gave me an idea, I accept your tip as solution.

Thanks again!
