Learn PowerPoint 2011 for Mac: Detach, Re-attach, and Delete Connectors

Created: Tuesday, February 28, 2012, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 3:30 am



When a connector is inserted to link two shapes or slide objects together, it gets attached to a certain point on both objects. For every object, there are several anchor points where you can attach a connector — for a typical rectangle (or square) shape, you will see four anchor points (red squares) when you are attaching a connector to it. Sometimes you may attach your connector to the wrong anchor point, and may need to detach it from that point, and attach it to some other anchor point. Or, maybe you connected to the wrong slide object altogether, and now want to detach the connector from one slide object and attach it to another. In this tutorial, we will explore ways to detach and attach connectors.

Learn how to detach, re-attach, and delete connectors in PowerPoint 2011.
