Dear experts!

I would like to understand, if it is possible for PowerPoint 2010 that I can create an "arbitrary" shape and achieve that PowerPoint takes care that text is positioned only within the visible borders of the shape so that the text flows (and changes) when I change the shape (via points).

I hope you get the idea behind my question.

Thank you very much in advance for helping me!

There's no way to do this. In PowerPoint text is contained in a  textframe and these are always rectangular.
