Scale text concurrently with object in PowerPoint
Posted on 2011-10-16
When working with an object in PowerPoint (2010), how do you get the text in that object, to scale with the object itself?
For example, suppose you select a rectangle from the Shapes option in the Insert menu then click somewhere in the PowerPoint window to place the rectangle in the slide. You can then immediately begin typing to enter text into the object. Now suppose you have entered whatever text you desire and have adjusted the size and shape of the rectangle as well as the size of the text so that everything looks just as you want.
However, suppose you copy/paste that same object to the next slide but in this case, you want it to be much smaller, say 30% of its original size. How do you make that change in size so that the text in the rectangle will shrink down as well?
In my PowerPoint, the text maintains its font size regardless of the object size and therefore spills out into the surrounding area outside of the object.
