Google Slides, a powerful tool found in Google’s software suite, is a great option for creating visually stunning presentations. While it’s packed with features that cater to users’ varying needs, it doesn’t directly offer a way to curve text. However, there’s no need to worry! There’s a handy workaround that you can use to achieve this effect. In this blog post, we’ll guide you step-by-step on how to curve text in Google Slides.
Step 1: Open Google Slides
To begin, log in to your Google account and navigate to Google Slides. You can either create a new presentation or open an existing one where you want to curve the text.
Step 2: Navigate to the Google Slides’ WordArt Feature
The workaround to create curved text involves using the WordArt feature. To access this, go to the toolbar and select Insert > WordArt.
Step 3: Create Your Desired Text
After clicking WordArt, an empty text box will appear in the middle of your screen. Type the text you wish to curve and press the Enter key. You can adjust the size, color, and font of the text as desired.
Step 4: Using Google Drawings
Since Google Slides does not provide an option to directly curve text, we will use Google Drawings. Copy your WordArt text and open a new tab in your browser. Navigate to Google Drawings. Once it’s open, paste the copied WordArt text.
Step 5: Curving the Text
To curve the text, click on the Action tab on the toolbar in Google Drawings, then select WordArt, and finally, select Curved from the options. You can adjust the curvature as desired.

Then, go back to your Google Slides presentation and Paste it onto your slide. You can adjust the size and positioning as needed.
While Google Slides does not directly offer a feature to curve text, it’s still possible with a clever workaround using Google Drawings. This process may require a bit more effort, but it will undoubtedly make your presentations stand out. Happy curving!
