Add Background to Text

A simple way to add a background under a text object using only one object:

  • Add a text Object in Objects and Animation (O&A)
  • Click on Drop Shadow in the Common Tab of O&A
  • Click on Customize in the Common Tab of O&A
  • In the Drop Shadow and Glow box click on Spread
  • In the dropdown menu click on “Cove - Deep” or “Cove - Shallow”
  • Adjust the “Distance and Size”
  • Click in the “Color” box and choose a background color
  • Adjust the Opacity

This approach can be used for text comments to automatically add background to all text comments on all slides.
