Format paragraph properties
Add bulleted or numbered lists
Using bullets make your writing compact, and helps highlight key points on the slide to your audience. However, if you want to write complete sentences and have more than four items in your list such as instructional procedures with steps, then the numbered lists will help present information in a concise way avoiding long paragraphs of text in your presentation.
To apply bullet or numbers,
1. Double tap on the text to add bullets/numbers and choose Format option.
This will open the different text formatting options on the bottom pane.
2. Scroll down to List Styles and tap the arrow next to List Styles.
3. Tap again on the List Style drop down to choose your preferred Bullets or Numbers style.
Change the text alignment
Align your text horizontally or vertically on the slide to consistently line up your content with other objects in the presentation. Also, a proper arrangement of text makes it easier for your audience to scan the slide, grasp key concepts, and appreciate visual cues.
To change the text alignment,
1. Double tap to select the paragraphs you want to align on slide and choose Format option.
If you select the entire placeholder, text box, or shape the alignment will apply to all of the content within the selection.
2. Scroll down to the Alignment option and align your text horizontally or vertically as follows:
To align the text horizontally,
- : Left Align the selected text to the left of the placeholder, text box, or shape.
- : Center Align aligns the text to the center of the placeholder, text box, or shape
- : Right Align aligns the selected text to the right of the placeholder, text box, or shape.
To align the text vertically,
- : Top - Aligns text at the top of placeholder, text box, or shape.
- : Middle - Aligns text at the middle of placeholder, text box, or shape.
- : Bottom - Aligns text at the bottom of placeholder, text box, or shape.
Adjust the line spacing
Line spacing is the space between each line in a paragraph on a slide. It's just as important as the font size on a slide. If the lines are too tight, the text will feel crowded and be harder to read. If the line spaces are too large, the text will appear unrelated and spacey. Setting the right line space is important for readability.
To adjust the line spacing,
1. Double tap to select the paragraph or line you want to adjust the spacing of, and choose Format option.
2. Scroll down to List Spacing option and do any of the following:
- To adjust the line spacing within a paragraph, use the up and down arrows next to Line Space and set the required space value.
- To adjust the spacing after or before a paragraph, use the up and down arrows next to Before and After options under Paragraph Spacing, and set the paragraph spacing you need.
Change the text indent
Adding indentation is a good way to distinguish the start of a new paragraph, especially when there is no paragraph spacing. These can also be useful to create a multilevel bulleted list where you have to divide each section into a clear first, second or third level section of text in the presentation. There are four types of indents in Zoho Show: Left Indent, Right Indent, First Line Indent, and Hanging Indent. The usual text indents (right and left) sets the space between the right and left margins on a slide. You can adjust this indent space as explained below.
To change the text indent,
1. Double tap to select the paragraph or bulleted list to indent and choose Format option.
2. Scroll down to Text Indent and apply any of the following indent styles:
- To add a right indent, tap the Left arrow .
- To add a left indent, tap the Right arrow .
- To add an indent before text, use the Up-down arrow to set the required indent space number next to the Before Text option.
- To add a special indent, tap the Special dropdown, and do the following:
- Choose FiRST LINE and set the required value to indent the first line of a paragraph. This helps determine the beginning position of the bullet character (or number in a numbered list).
- Choose HANGING and set the required value to adjust the spacing between the bullet character (or number) and the subsequent paragraphs. Hanging denotes the area between the bullet and the first text character within the bulleted list.
- None removes any applied indents from a paragraph/list.
