Your slide is too adj

What's an adjective to indicate that there are too many words on a slide?

    Too dense, too busy, is an eye-chart, etc. – Dan Bron Aug 12 '15 at 0:28
  • I like the fact that you included a wordy slide discouraging the use of such slides. – Dog Lover Aug 12 '15 at 1:03
  • "There are too any words on your slide" – Mitch Aug 12 '15 at 2:15
  • "there is too many words" vs "there are too many words" – Blessed Geek Aug 12 '15 at 4:09

    "Busy" is the term I'd reach for first. – Hot Licks Aug 15 '15 at 15:51


If I were to type about sixteen paragraphs describing what exactly this word really means, then that would be a very wordy explanation.

Crowded is another option, if you're just referring to the unavailability of white space.


This slide is too cluttered.

This slide is too busy.

This slide makes me feel claustrophobic.

I also like dense, which was proposed in a comment.

    Very good. "Cluttered" is my own favourite in this usage. – Anton Aug 12 '15 at 7:46

It's not specific to slides or PowerPoints, but you could use "verbose".

verbose adj.

characterised by the use of many or too many words; wordy

noun: verboseness
