This week’s Caption Fun Friday is a little different.  I came across something that just made me snort and I wanted to share it with all 140 of you who read this thing with any sort of regularity.

I had to work on a PowerPoint presentation this week for our sales manager.  One of the things that was bothering me while working with PowerPoint was that I couldn’t figure out how to make the text wrap around an image.  It was really getting frustrating.  Normally these things are pretty self explanatory – some sort of button or right click (even WordPress has a text wrap function when you upload an image), but not so with PowerPoint, so I had to resort to using their Help button and doing a search for ‘wrap text’.  What I found, is what made me snort/amused me to no end.

1) There is no such function in PowerPoint.

2) They have detailed instructions on how to ‘work around this’:

As I said, this just amused me so much.  If you want to wrap your text, create multiple text boxes and SURROUND the image…

You can’t make this stuff up…

    Could you make it in Word or something that HAS wrap facilities, then group the object and text boxes, then slap the entire object into powerpoint?
    I hate powerpoint.
