The highlighting of text draws attention. If you subscribe to Office 365, you can highlight text directly in PowerPoint. If you are using a desktop version of PowerPoint, you must use a workaround. Let's show you both ways:
Highlight text in PowerPoint (Office 365 subscribers)
If you're an Office 365 subscriber, open PowerPoint and go to the slide that contains the text you want to highlight. Select the text there by holding down the left mouse button and dragging the mouse pointer over the text.
After you select the text, a font pop-up displays various font options. Click the marker icon.
Your text is now highlighted.
You can also choose between different colors. If you want something other than yellow, click the arrow next to the highlighter icon. A menu with different colors will appear. Choose the one you like best.
You can also find all of these options in the Font section of the Home tab.
Tab Highlighting Text in PowerPoint (Non-Office 365 Subscribers)
This method is more time-consuming than difficult. If you are not an Office 365 subscriber, you do not have a native highlighting tool in PowerPoint. This means that you have to work in one of the other Office applications for this to work. You can use Excel or Word as you wish. We will use Word.
Open Word and enter the text you want to highlight and transfer it to PowerPoint.
Select the option Text by holding down the left mouse button and dragging the cursor over the text. Once the text is selected, a pop-up window appears. You can click the highlight button to add the highlighting. You can also click the down arrow to the right of the marker button to select different colors.
And your text will be read now. highlighted text in Word “/>
Select the text again and press Ctrl + C to copy the text to the clipboard and go back to PowerPoint.
Paste the text anywhere in PowerPoint by pressing Ctrl + V. Your text will now appear in the slide, but without any highlighting.
Next, from the Insert Options menu, choose Keep Source Formatting.
Your text will now be displayed with the highlighted text.
