Learn PowerPoint 2011 for Mac: Shape Intersect

Created: Tuesday, January 3, 2012, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 3:30 am



PowerPoint 2011 allows you to take any shapes — and then use Combine, Union, Intersect, or Subtract commands to create your own new shape out of them. Play around with these commands to indulge in endless hours of fun, but be careful not to be addictive. In this tutorial, you will see how you can take two or more shapes and intersect them to end up with interesting results. For example, we placed two basic shapes over a square (three shapes in all) as shown towards the left of the figure shown. With these shapes selected, we could use the Intersect command that is explained later in this tutorial to create a unified, intersected shape as shown towards the right in the same figure. This new shape only retains those areas where all the three shapes were intersecting each other.

Learn how you can intersect shapes in PowerPoint 2011 using the Intersect command.
