Connectors are lines that join two shapes or objects, and can be found within the Lines and Connectors category within the Shape gallery in PowerPoint 2011. These connectors link between (or join) two shapes like rectangles, triangles, scribbles, etc. to create a relationship. In addition, they also work with other slide objects such as pictures. Since these connectors are linked to slide objects, they move automatically when the linked objects are moved. That’s the reason why they are called “Smart Connectors” — you’ll learn more about all the other smart things these connectors do in subsequent tutorials of this series.

Learn about Smart connectors, and how they are different from conventional lines in PowerPoint 2011.
