Google Slides is a superb tool for creating presentations, but it can be somewhat limited when it comes to more advanced design options. One such feature is the ability to bend or curve text, which is not directly available in Google Slides. However, there’s no need to worry as there is a workaround for this! Here, we’ll guide you through how you can bend text in Google Slides using Google Drawings.
Step 1: Open Google Drawings
To begin with, you need to open Google Drawings which is another free tool provided by Google. You can find it by simply typing “Google Drawings” into your search engine and clicking on the first result.
Step 2: Create your text
Once you’re in Google Drawings, click on the Text box button in the toolbar at the top of the page. Draw a text box and type in the text you want to bend.
Step 3: Format your text
You can adjust the font, size, color, and other formatting options using the toolbar at the top of the page. Make sure your text is exactly how you want it before you curve it.
Step 4: Curve your text
To curve your text, click on the Format option in the toolbar, then click on Word Art. This will transform your text into Word Art. Now, you have the option to bend your text. Click on the dropdown menu next to the Word Art icon and select Transform. Here, you’ll find several options to curve or bend your text. Select the one that best suits your needs.
Step 5: Insert your curved text into Google Slides
After you’ve curved your text, you need to insert it into your Google Slides presentation. Go to File > Download > PNG to download your text as an image. Then, go to your Google Slides presentation, click on the Insert > Image > Upload from computer option, and select the image you just downloaded. Now, you have successfully bent text in Google Slides!
While it might seem a bit complicated at first, bending text in Google Slides is quite easy once you get the hang of it. This little workaround allows you to add a unique flair to your presentations, making them stand out and capture your audience’s attention.
