I'm trying to create a course presentation that includes a slide that shows a short poem. I have tried typing the poem in directly. I have tried cutting and pasting the poem in from a Word doc. Two things happen consistently.
The first is that extra spaces are being added automatically between the lines and I can't remove them. This happens even if I copy over a single-spaced version from word. The poem has three stanzas, the lines within each stanza should be single-spaced, with double-spacing between stanzas. I tried typing in directly to the text screen, but I can find no option for single-spacing. Sometimes in the text box the poem looks fine, but when I go to view the finished slide, the extra spaces are back.
If I accept the extra spaces--ensuring that extra wide spaces are between each stanza--I can't fit the whole poem on the slide unless I make the font so small it's not readable.
Any suggestions? I've been working on this one slide for two hours, trying everything I can think of. It's incredibly frustrating.
