To access it, Go to the PowerPoint Home tab and click the Font group button to open the Font dialog box and choose an Effect option.

Are you able to choose this?

Please let me know

Thank you

There is no "effect" option in the font dialogue box - only "font" and "character spacing".


 


I believe "transform" is supposed to be reached via drawing tools - text effects. I can open text effects but there is no "transform" option there,

Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
Are you able to do it this way?

Click on the text - 'Drawing Tools' menu bar appears.
Click Format -> Text Effects -> Transform.


Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Sorry, but that is exactly what I can't do (and the reason I asked the question) Transform does not appear as a text effect option.

Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.

I am always reluctant to let a stranger into my computer, so before doing so, I will tell you what options appear when I go via drawing tools - text effects


 


Text fill


Text outline


Outline style


Shadow


3d format


3d rotation


 


Text box layout, autofit and margins


 


This is what you will see too, if you go there. So are there other avenues you will be able to explore when you see this?

Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
No, If I go there I get Transform.

But I think you may be using an older Powerpoint file from a previous version.

Make a new powerpoint file, blank, and add a text box.

Then check if it is there.

Let me know the results please

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No, I'm not using an old file. I have done exactly what you suggest many times whilst trying to find the "transform" option.

Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
