Yooo! It is Tuesday Tips Time.
Time to hit you with the best PPT hacks and some auxi stacks.
As always - the Golden Rule: Hit CTRL + SPACE to open up the smart bar.
Let's get started.
Select any 2 shapes, open the Smart Bar and find Connect to connect both items with the best connector and points for the job.
If you want to swap the direction of the connector, you can also select the connected shapes, and find Swap Ends on the Smart Bar.
If you want to change the route of the connector, open the Smart Bar again, and use Reroute Connectors.
⤷ Finally. It is now easy to connect shapes on PowerPoint.
2. Edit Colors.
Look for Edit Colors in the Smart Bar to change colors of a slide, slide range, or all your presentation.
⤷ Now you can edit your deck’s colors in bulk!
3. Align Process.
Hit P on your keyboard to add a pentagon, then C to add a couple chevrons. Then, select all your items and hit A + P to Align Process.
You can also use the Smart Bar to find Align Process.
⤷ Now you can fulfill your musical hobby by playing auxi shortcuts like a musical instrument! 🎼
4. Resize Slides.
Look for Resize Slides in the Smart Bar, then choose the new slide size you want, and press apply.
⤷ Now your slides finally have the fit size they’ve always wanted! 💅
5. Make Same Size, Width, and Height.
Resize items to have the same height, width, or both.
S + S for Make Same Size
S + H for Make Same Height
S + W for Make Same Width
You can use the Smart Bar to find the above commands as well.
The anchor shape concept applies here - select first the shape that has the size you like, then select the remaining ones to follow.
⤷ Voila! All shapes will be resized to the anchor’s width and/or height. ↔️ ↕️
