Learn PowerPoint 2011 for Mac: Duplicate Shapes Using Command+D

Created: Thursday, November 24, 2011, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 3:30 am



You learned how to duplicate shapes by dragging them in an earlier tutorial, but while that’s a nice way to duplicate two or five shapes, it’s not the best way to create ten, twenty, or more copies. We all know that you can press Command+C to copy any shape in PowerPoint to the clipboard, and a resulting Command+V always pastes a copy from the clipboard to the slide — what many people don’t realize is PowerPoint has this almost supernatural keyboard shortcut called Command+D (yes, the D stands for duplicate), and this shortcut does more than just duplicate; in fact it creates a pattern of evenly-spaced and symmetrical shapes!

Learn how to duplicate shapes using the Command+D key combination in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac.
