    I have a presentation on Tuesday morning and I'm just organising it and I'm not liking the way the text is wrapping with this template, can anybody tell me why it's behaving in the way it is? Even though I have set the boundary a lot further to the right on each slide the text wraps prematurely. Leaving me with a lot less room on each slide.

    If some of these text on these slides is bad, it's not my fault, I just made the presentation. :p

    Here it is:

    Nice presentation, the text seems to have come out fine apart from slide 39. I like the theme!

    Just a couple of points. I would use another effect rather than dissolve perhaps, makes it look a little bit busy in my eyes. 'Reveal' works pretty well.

    And maybe animate some of your bullet points, so they 'slide' in as your talking, rather than up on the page already...think of Steve's keynotes! :p

    Just a few suggestions for you to take or leave! Nice presentation.

    Thanks! I've fixed slide 39, that slipped by me, I had to put about 30 slides together in half an hour and missed that mistake.

    I need to do something a bit more classy with each slide, and I'm going to be running this on an iBook 500 taken from school so any speedy effects aren't going to work. Hence I chose dissolve so that if it lags it won't be too noticable and set cube on slow so it has more time to draw the frames.

    Any light to shed on the wrap?

    check your ruler

    If you show rulers under the View menu in the bar, you will find that your right margin is holding you up. Slide it over all the way to the right and you are in business!

    Not sure what's going in with the text wrapping. When i try making a new slide it seems to work fine and I'm able to type right to the end of the slide. However, when I try to edit something you've already written, I can't seem to get rid of the big gap on the right.

    Hmmm, tres annoying! :rolleyes:
