Learn PowerPoint 2010: Align Shapes in PowerPoint

Created: Thursday, December 16, 2010, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 7:06 am



I am a great believer in creative freedom, and unrequired alignment of slide objects such as shapes is probably as bad a design decision as aligning nothing at all. In the end, every decision to align needs to stem from your creative thoughts — sometimes it works, and some other times, an unaligned bunch of shapes looks perfectly natural and organic. Also remember that alignment works with more than just shapes — and you can also combine shapes with other slide objects and align them all together. Now for those times when you place shapes on a PowerPoint slide anywhere you want, and then you need these shapes to be arranged in a straight line — follow these steps to learn more.

Learn how you can align shapes in PowerPoint 2010.
