How much time do you spend trying to fit text into a placeholder or AutoShape? One option is to reduce the font size or try a different font that takes up less room. But sometimes, you want consistency of font and font size and don’t have room to expand the placeholder or AutoShape. Another option is to split one slide into two or reword the text. If you only need a little extra space, I have found the following solution very helpful:
Right-click the placeholder or AutoShape and choose Format Placeholder or Format AutoShape.
In the resulting dialog box, click the Text Box tab. In the Internal Margin section reduce the numbers for the left, right, top, and bottom margins. I often set the margins to zero in placeholders with no visible border.
