Text and Shape Objects in PowerPoint
The three rectangles you have on your slide from the previous lesson all have the same text. Here's what your rectangles should look like:
To change the text on a grouped objects, simple click inside the text box. Your cursor will start flashing. For the second text box, change your text to this:
