Text Styles in PowerPoint

Text styles are not present in PowerPoint by default. However, you can create your own text style. Open a text placeholder with a bullet list in the slide master.

And customize the formatting of text at each bullet level. Then, go back to the normal view and increase indent to apply the text style.

We'll need to take the help of the “Slide Master” in PowerPoint. Let’s take a look at the steps.

How to Create a Custom Text Style in PowerPoint

Step 1

The first step of the process is to open the slide master view in PowerPoint. To do that, first, click on the “View” tab. Then, from the ribbon, click on the “Slide Master” option.

Step 2 

You can easily add placeholders in PowerPoint. Click on the “Insert Placeholder” button. Then, from the dropdown, click on the “Text” option to add a text placeholder on the slide layout.

Step 3

Select all the text in the placeholder and remove all the bullets from the text. Click on the “Home” tab in PowerPoint. Then, click on the “Bullets” option.

Step 4

Move all the text to align all of it together to the left. Place your cursor at the beginning of the text. Then, drag the position marker all the way to the left.

Step 5

From the “Home” tab, format the text to create a text style. Feel free to change the font type, increase or decrease the font size, or make the font bold or thin.
