6 Steps to Creating Buttons in PowerPoint
Creating a button gives you the opportunity to use many formatting features of PowerPoint. Each button will be different, but here are 6 general steps that you can use. I’ve provided some links to further details.
1. Insert a shape (I often like the rounded rectangle) and type the text that you want for the button. Bold text is usually best because it stands out more.
2. Make the outline thicker. On the Format tab, choose Shape Outline, Weight.
3. Change the fill color. On the Format tab, choose Shape Fill. You may also need to change the text color at this point so that it’s legible.
