Make a Transparent or Semi-Transparent Text Box!

Happy New Year everyone!!!  I am so excited to be writing up the first Technology Tuesday tutorial on the very first day of 2013!  The winner of this week's poll was how to make text boxes that are transparent and semi-transparent/translucent!

This week's poll was pretty spread out, but this choice was the clear winner!

I've outline how to do this in both PowerPoint and Word!  Enjoy!

For next week's poll, I'm going to add an iPad/smartphone tutorial.  Lately when I've been visiting blogs on my iPad, the mobile version of the blog has been loading, and it doesn't look as pretty!  So, I'll be adding how to change the view so it shows the full version of the blog you're visiting!


  1. The new ipad version of blogs is driving me bunkers. Can't wait until next week.
