Strikethrough is a type of formatting in documents where you draw a line through some text. This is meant to indicate that the text should be disregarded, but still leaves it there in case you need it for the final draft of your project, or so that anyone reading the document will know that you originally had that word in the document but elected to replace it with something else.
The strikethrough styling is present in most applications with font options, so it is available to you in Powerpoint 2013. Our guide below will show you how to select text and apply strikethrough formatting to it.
