      Thanks, Ashen. I think the text when enlarged has potential. Anyway, here’s the code (see below). Copy and paste it into your post entry, then substitute your own words. You’ll need to experiment to see what’s working. I got the idea here: http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2013/08/14/presentations-shortcode/ Still, it took me a little while to figure it out. This was also helpful: http://en.support.wordpress.com/presentations/

      You can begin the post with ordinary text, but where you want the slide show to begin, type as follows: (One thing. For the text in the slides, I used the “pre-formatted” option in the post. Let me know if you are not familiar with that option). Try it and see what happens. I just wanted to see if I could do it. Might do something more with it.

      [presentation]

      [slide bgcolor=#d3e7f8 rotate=33]

      type your text here. Use the “pre-formatted” option here if you want to cut up lines.

      1. Huh. Thanks for the links and codes. I looked this up, impressive tool. I’m hopeless with complex technical procedures. My son is into presentation tools and might help, once he’s back from Australia. I like the slide tool you use, especially for poetry and vignettes.

          And to decide how much time to devote to it. Might not be worth the time, depending on the goal. I do also like it for poetry, for concrete poetry ideas but also as a means toward an alternative to stanza breaks, line length, pauses, rhythm.
