    • How to Use Text Break text up with bullets or numbers. (As is done in this slide) Indenting shows subordination See? Avoid lengthy paragraphs that give far too muchdetail, like talking about why you did what you did and whether you dislike positivism because there is such a thing as reality out there and it operates in a certain way and we should be able to access that in some shape, form, or fashion and besides it’s all from some stuffy old dead guy thinking too hard, anyway.

    • Design EssentialsMake sure your font colors stand out against the background. Use fonts people can read. Titles & headings should be 40 to 70 pt.

Use one color for headings, another for body text.Use a single color background, anything else will not come out clearly in your printout.
