Format a text

Format a text

After you have added text to your slide you can apply various styles and effects to make your presentation look impressive. With the Show app for Android, you can change the color of the text to reflect your brand, list ideas using bulleted or numbered lists, add superscript or subscript to indicate scientific equations, and do so much more. 
  1. Tap on the text to change the font face and choose Format at the bottom.
    This will open the formatting options in the bottom pane.

Text formatting options include:

Font face 

Tap to apply any of the following font face options:

: Bold

: Italics

: Underline

: Strike through
  : Make the text appear above the baseline.

            : Make the text appear at or below the baseline.
Superscript and subscript allow you to make smaller notations that are slightly higher or lower than the rest of your text. For example, symbols in the formulas, x^(n-1) and specifications of chemical compounds (H2O).

Text Indent

Text indent helps 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.

  3. None removes any special applied indents applied.
  4. Use the up and down arrows next to Spacing to adjust the spacing.

Text Box

The text placed within text boxes and shapes can be positioned and aligned in one of two ways: Resize shape to text or Shrink text to shape. Adjusting text manually with respect to the internal margin space (right, left, top, and bottom) fits in the desired direction on the slide, and also helps line it up with other objects throughout the presentation.
