Align Shapes in PowerPoint:

Ever struggled to align shapes in PowerPoint? And yes, it got easier with the guidelines they brought in a while back. But there is an easier way. MUCH easier.

Now as promised, I’ll show you how to align shapes in PowerPoint. Here’s some previous posts about being Rock stars in PowerPoint:

Select all the images you wish to align by keeping Ctrl down while clicking on them. Once selected (1) – go to the “Format” Tab (2) > “Align” (3) then choose which type of alignment you want to use. I will be aligning my shapes first to the left, then I’ll align them vertically.

Below I’ve also set the alignment for the text next to the shapes (when the alignment is not on shapes or images – the Format Tab will not open and you will find this function under the Home Tab)’

Select the text you would like to align (1), click on the “Home” Tab (2) > “Arrange” (3) > “Align” (4) then choose which type of alignment you want to use.

End result:

Happy presenting!!

 

Purpose of this blog challenge:

I will write 365 blogs in 365 days around Microsoft 365. I did a similar challenge with Office 365, blogs can be found here. I won’t just be talking about the new Microsoft 365 subscription model. I will be sharing any news, tips and tricks around Office / Office 365 / Windows / Mobility and Security. And let’s not forget all the great new Apps & services available.  A lot of what I’ll share on Office and SharePoint will also be applicable to none “Office 365” versions.
