Table and text with in MS powerpoint

Dear experts,

I have inserted a table in the powerpoint and have typed a word in it.

The issue I have is I have put a lot of stuff in one slide, hence the space is demanding.

In the cell (within the table), I can see there is space between the last alphabet and the cell border, similar is the case with the first alphabet (large space between the cell border and the first alphabet).

the question,

1. Why and how is this space created?
2. Is there a way I could reduce this and how do i reduce it.

Thank you

It's a cell margin and it's a default setting in PPT that you can't change.

Select the table (or just put your cursor in the cell to change an individual cell). Go to the Table Tools Layout tab and click Cell Margins, then select one of the options or select Custom Margins to type in your own settings.

To edit the margins for an individual shape:

Select the shape and choose the drawing Tools/Format tab.

Click on the tiny arrow to the bottom left of the 'Shape Styles' group.

Select 'Text Box' from the 'Format Shape' dialogue that appears.

Adjust the 'Internal margin' settings to suit.
