In PowerPoint I have inserted a text box and I want to color the font yellow with a black outline. How do I create the black outline on the yellow lettering?

    You can try using Word Art. It's in the Drawing toolbar. If the Drawing toolbar isn't visible, Click View, Toolbars, Drawing. Word Art is the Big A icon.

    Once the Word Art is inside your slide, right click it then choose Format Word Art to get the font color and outline that you prefer.

    Good Luck.
