You learned how to duplicate shapes by dragging in an earlier tutorial, but while that’s a nice way to duplicate five or ten shapes, it’s not the best way to create ten, twenty, or more copies. We all know that you can press Ctrl+C to copy any shape in PowerPoint to the clipboard, and a resulting Ctrl+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 Ctrl+D (yes, the D stands for duplicate), and this Ctr+D shortcut does more than just duplicate; in fact it creates a pattern of evenly-spaced and symmetrical shapes!
