About Free Text Boxes and Text in Shapes
If you want to add text outside the placeholder text areas on a slide, you can add a
text box to a slide. Text boxes have no bullets (but you can add them) and are perfect
for adding captions to images, adding labels to organization charts or other visual aids,
or simply adding any text that you want to separate from the headings or main body
bullet points on your slides. If you want to place text within a nonrectangular shape, or
if you want to have more control over the color, edges, and style of the text’s container,
put text inside a shape.
