  • Type your text/numbers in vertical order and then draw a full slide-size rectangle over the text/numbers. Then draw another small rectangle on top of the full rectangle at the point from which you want to subtract. Select both of the rectangles using the SHIFT key and then from the Format tab, click Merge Shapes drop-down button and use Subtract command.
