Change colour of one word in a sentence
There are times when it is necessary to highlight one or two words in a sentence. It would be great to not have to create a separate text box, line it up on the screen, change the colour, and then complete the sentence with another text box - going through the exact same process again. It isn't bad doing this for only item, but when you have several slides that need this, it adds quite a bit of time to the editing process.

I use an *asterisk* to highlight certain words, but a different colour would definately work better.

Need BOLD and ITALICIZE as well

If you do this, while you're at it... :) it'd be nice to have other text effects by word as well. Doug suggested bold and italicize, and the original suggestion was color; I'd also suggest drop shadow (there was a workaround on the group and I use it, but again, a bit annoying), glow, bevel, emboss... you get the picture. No sense opening up the code on text controls to do one thing only to open it up again next month to do another.
