Shadows can be applied to text in two ways:


This macro will remove the shadow from any text in your presentation and hide any shadow that's been applied to the shape that contains text using the shadow settings button.

    Dim oShp As Shape

    For Each oSld In ActivePresentation.Slides
        For Each oShp In oSld.Shapes
            If oShp.HasTextFrame Then
                If oShp.TextFrame.HasText Then

                    oShp.Shadow.Visible = msoFalse
                End If
            End If
