Body Formatting

Being the highest level of formatting available within a shape, the body properties allow for the manipulation of the text area as a whole. This means that all paragraphs and runs of text for the shape in question would be encompassed within here and, therefore, follow the text body style defined here.


Rather than try to change each of the paragraphs to a smaller font size to fit in the shape, just use a body-level format property such as the <normAutofit>. This will apply to all text within the shape and scale the text by a certain percentage in order to fit within the shape.

    <a:normAutofit fontScale="20000" lnSpcReduction="20000"/>
