How to stop Powerpoint from breaking words into a new line

Hi Expert,

I would like to check how can I "stop Powerpoint from breaking words into a new line" in Powerpoint 2016 in windows 10. I google it and didn't find a solution. My words in text box, when reaching the end will break and continue on next line somehow, how can I wrap it word by word like usual?

Appreciate if any expert can assist me on.

Thanks!

1. Open power point
2. Assume that you are having new page having two text box (Page1.jpg)
3. Using mouse click on "Click to add title" => a cursor will come(Page2.jpg)
4. Start typing => My name at experts exchange m (Page3.jpg)
5. If we add one character => My name at experts exchange mu (Page4.jpg)
the word "mu" comes at next line. (Page4.jpg)
6. Press Ctrl A at the line where you are typing (Page5.jpg)
Right click there
7. Change the font size from 44 to 25 and press Enter
8. Start adding more characters => My name at experts exchange murugesandins (Page9.jpg)

I hope that this will help you.

These methods will work but you will have to fix the textboxes one by one. We have been experimenting with code to fix the presentation in one go. You are welcome to try it out but no guaratees it will work for you (it does here)
