I’ll go ahead and add one as a demonstration by right clicking the text, then going to Format Text Effects, then under Text Options, going to Text Fill on the left and scrolling down and making the text outline solid, white, at 3 points in width to make it nice and visible.
It depends on what kind of effects you are referring to. If you mean a text animation effect, select the text then display the animation Custom Animation dialog as shown in this link. In the dialog, select the animation you want to remove, then click the X. If you mean text effects such as shadows, 3-d, rotation, etc then select the text and then right-click on the selected text. Choose Format Text from the menu to display the Format Text dialog. The question process does not recognize that Office for Mac has moved on to 2012 because there is no such thing as Office 2012 for Mac (or for PC for that matter).
Powerpoint On A Mac
The latest version of Office for Mac as of March 2012 is Office 2011. I am an unpaid volunteer and do not work for Microsoft. 'Independent Advisors' work for contractors hired by Microsoft. 'Microsoft Agents' work for Microsoft Support. I don't mean to give you a short answer, but without knowing which specific 'text effects', how you're trying to remove them or why they can't be removed it's difficult to accurately provide explicit instructions. In general, though, any effects, formatting, etc. Can be removed or changed by simply revisiting the process by which it was applied.
I.e., if you want to remove Bold or Italic select the text & click the Bold or Italic button to turn it off. If you want to remove a Fill Color select the content then choose No Fill from the Fill Color dropdown. If you provide a thorough explanation of the issue I'm sure someone will be glad to provide more guided directions. Regards, Bob J. Please mark HELPFUL or ANSWERED as appropriate to keep list as clean as possible ☺ Regards, Bob J. I'm not talking about BOLD or Italics or color - the basic kind of effects.
I was referring to the consequences of using the more sophisticated 'Text Effects' button (shadows, etc.) located in the HOME tab of the Ribbon in Powerpoint. Using that button, all you can do is ADD effects to text. There is NO immediate delete or remove capability when using this particular feature. What was not obvious to me, and is now, is that I needed to click on one or more of the effects options in the FORMAT TEXT dropdown box in the menubar in order to see what effect was turned ON. Then and only then can the Effect be turned OFF. Convoluted approach, but now I know.
Effects In Powerpoint
Jim, Your buddy John Wilson suggested I throw this by you. We have tried to automate turning off text effects, specifically the shadow effect using VBA. We have come to the conclusion that this option is not available using VBA for Mac for Office 2011. I don't know VBA very well so I am totally dependent on the experts for assistance. If VBA has limitations on the Mac version I am okay if there were a shortcut to remove shadow effects from all the slides in a presentation.
The issue is I prepare the presentation for our church and the worship leader will send me a presentation to clean up that is a combination of a bunch of various Powerpoint slides and they are all different text styles, sizes, fonts, colors, etc. Using the VBA tool we have eliminated everything except the shadow effect which makes the letters sometimes look blurred on the overheads.
So, for example, this week I got 75 slides from them and changed everything with simply running the Macro we created.one 'button'. And then when checking the slides I found 70 of the 75 slides had the shadow effect so I had to manually go into every slide, select the text and then remove the shadow effect.there has to be a simpler way. Any help would be appreciated. If you would, please put an object with a shadow effect on it onto a slide, then provide a code snippet that removes the shadow and works in Excel 2010 or 2013 on Windows but doesn't work on the Mac. Then save the presentation as a macro-enabled presentation and put it onto a shared drive (OneDrive, DropBox, etc) it would be very helpful. Having an Example to share with Microsoft would be the best way to show them what's going on.
