Please have boxes in PowerPoint slides more efficiently use space to accommodate more text
We frequently pose exam-like questions, which have significant question text, and sometimes significant answer foil text. These are exam-like and thus are very popular with students when we present them live using PollEverywhere. Instructors get to address misconceptions and answer questions in real time, using exam-quality questions to simulate the discussion. Because PollEverywhere limits titles to 255 characters, we use slide text to pose the question, and then minimize the PollEverywhere content. This has worked well for years, but the new display format has broken this.
Note on the attached figure that foils fail to wrap, wasting space below. Using the PollEverywhere content to fill the entire slide does not typically work much better, and as noted, titles are limited to 255 characters (which is insufficient). Thus, these presentations will have to be re-written (or we will have to find a new solution).
