When typing in PowerPoint, you may find that the text automatically shrinks when you type more text than can fit in a text placeholder. This is called AutoFit. In some cases, this can be helpful. In other cases this may not be the case. To disable this.
The best case for disabling AutoFit is if you know how big a box (or any shape) you want on your slide and and you know the size you want To be text. In that case, it makes more sense to run the text over the box so you can edit the text to a point where it fits.
Let's take a look at what happens when typing in a text placeholder. If you type more than fits in the placeholder, the AutoFit Options button appears. Click the AutoFit Options button to see the available options.
In this example, the option "AutoFit Text to Wildcards" is selected.
Enable AutoFit Disable the active text box and allow the text to go beyond the placeholder border. Click "Customize text to this placeholder".
If you now enter text outside the border of the text placeholder, enter the text Additional text is added and the text size is not changed.
Now you can edit the text to fit in the box. You can also try different fonts and paragraph spacing to see if you can customize the text instead of having PowerPoint resize the font.
Do you want to disable AutoFit globally for all new text placeholders that you add? You can disable AutoFit using the AutoCorrect options, and there are two ways to get there:
Option 1: One option is to click the AutoFit Options button when it appears, then press "Control AutoCorrect Options". "
Option 2: Another way to access the AutoCorrect options is via File> Options> Fixes> AutoCorrect Options.
Whichever method you use, you are in the AutoCorrect window. On the AutoFormat As You Type tab, clear the AutoFit title text in wildcards and AutoFit text in wildcards check boxes to turn AutoFit off.
If you want AutoFit to remain enabled, select these check boxes.
And there is everything in it!
