PowerPoint is a popular presentation software.

The definition of "justified text" is text that is aligned at both the left and right margins, forming a "square" of text. In other words, the left and right margins are straight. When you justify text, it sometimes creates larger white spaces between the words in the paragraph. This alignment can create a clean appearance to a presentation that has been created in PowerPoint.
