PowerPoint 2016 lets you take a bunch of selected shapes and then apply one of the five Merge Shapes options to end up with some amazing results. However, the Intersect option that we are exploring within this tutorial works a little differently than the Combine, Fragment, Subtract, or Union options that we explore in other tutorials. With Intersect, the result is a single shape that is a remnant of the areas where all selected shapes intersected (overlapped).
