Delete Text or Replace


Delete all text in selected PowerPoint text boxes or shapes in one click. Or nominate to replace text with a character - for example convert text to dots.

Helpful when reusing slides from a previous presentation, to retain the format but not the content. PPT Productivity's Delete Text or replace feature lets you delete the text in all selected text boxes or shapes or replace it.

When the delete option is selected, PowerPoint shapes remain on the slide and will retain their original appearance, but without any text. However Text boxes disappear if the delete option is selected where there is not additional formatting on the textbox (for example color fill or margin).

Where additional formatting has been applied, text boxes will remain on the screen, but may shrink. To retain all slide formatting, choose the convert to dots option, to retain all slide formatting. This feature is an easy way to quickly redact text in PowerPoint while keeping the slide layout.

Productivity Tip

Delete Text or replace is a consultants best friend for slide reuse! Use this feature before saving a copy of a well formatted slide (without the text) for easy reuse in your Slide Library.

Shortcut Keys

All PPT Productivity features can be used via the Customizable Shortcut Keys for PowerPoint feature.
