Hi,

I'm creating a document in powerpoint in which I have used Smart Art Graphics to create figures with text in them. I have adjusted the margins within the figure to 0 cm because I want the words to fit at their current font without "wrapping"- but the text is still wrapping and I am unable to unclick the "wrap text" option for the textbox. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Moved here to the correct forum.

Which version of Powerpoint are you using? And please provide us with some info about your Mac and which version of OS X you're running.

I'm a little confused. Are you using 2008 or 2011.

Can you post a picture of this?

I'm using Powerpoint 2011 but it should be the same for 2008 which I no longer use. The only way I found to get the text not to wrap was to decrease the size of the font or use a different (smaller) font in the text box. I'll play around with some old presentations that I have laying around and see if I can come up with a work around. I haven't used Smart Art Graphics very much so I'll have to experiment a bit.

I'll post back here if I come up with something. In the meantime, if you're pressed for a deadline, you can go to the Microsoft Mac Office Forums and ask there. The Mac Office experts hang out there. MS Powerpoint Mac Forum
