How to prevent PowerPoint from automatically changing text

In PowerPoint, you can notice that if you enter more text than fits inside a text space holder, the text will automatically change to a smaller size. This is called AutoFit. In some cases it may be helpful in other cases, it can not. Here's how to turn it off.

The best case to turn off AutoFit is when you know how much you want a box (or some shape) to be on your frame and you know what size you want the text to be in it the case makes it more meaningful to let the text pass the box so that you can edit the text down to a point where it fits.

AutoFit Options

Let's first look at what happens when you type in a text space holder. If you type more than fits into the placeholder, the AutoFit Options button appears. Click on the "AutoFit Options" button to display the available options.

In this example, the option "AutoFit Text to Placeholder" is selected.

To enable AutoFit off for the active text box and allow text to move beyond the spaceholder limit, click "Stop matching text to this placeholder".

If you write text outside the text space holder limit, additional text is added and the text size is not changed.

Now you can edit the text to the point where it fits your box. You can also try different fonts and paragraph distances to see if you can make your text fit instead of just allowing PowerPoint to resize the font.

Auto-fix options

Do you want to turn off AutoFit globally for all new text owners you add? You can turn AutoFit off with AutoCorrect options, and there are two ways to get there.

Option 1: One way to click on the "AutoFit Options" button when it appears, and then click "Control AutoCorrect Options Option # 2: Another way to access AutoCorrect options is through File> Options> Monitoring> Automatic correction options.

No matter what method you use to get there, you find yourself in the AutoCorrect window. On the "AutoFormat as you type" tab, deselect the "AutoFit title text for placeholder" checkboxes. and "AutoFit body text to placeholder" to turn off AutoFit.

To continue AutoFit, keep these boxes marked.

And there's everything there!
