Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Drawing Multiple Shapes Quickly

Created: Wednesday, September 4, 2013, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 3:45 am



Sometimes you need to draw multiple shapes of the same type on a slide, maybe a hundred smiley faces on one slide, or even a hundred stars on a dark blue slide. Yes, we can do that in PowerPoint by duplicating existing shapes but when did you see a night sky where each star was the exact same size? So that leaves out the Ctrl dragging and Ctrl D duplicating tricks, since every shape that’s exactly the same in size as the other certainly does not look organic.

Learn how to use the Lock Drawing Mode option to quickly draw multiple instances of the same shape in PowerPoint 2013.
