    Painbrush Effect (PowerPoint 2003)

    I'll be making a presentation with PP and would like to highlight text using a paintbrush effect - that is I want to show color over black text - I beleive that's possible with PP, but I'm not sure how to do that. Any suggestions?

    If you check for highlighting in PowerPoint Help, you'll see that PowerPoint does not include a test highlighting feature. It is suggested that you create a drawing box over the text, select the color, set transparency to 50% and use no lines. This will create a similar effect to highlighting in Word. I'm not aware of any other choice to create the effect you are looking for.

    You could also reverse the Dim effect. Have the text come in matching the background colour and then change to a brighter shade.
