Missing the McKinsey PowerPoint Shortcuts?

Are you a McKinsey Alumni who misses the McKinsey PowerPoint keyboard shortcuts? PPT Productivity now has a preconfigured set of Shortcut keys to match the McKinsey Shortcuts.

PPT Productivity has customizable PowerPoint Keyboard Shortcuts for all Power Tools users. The feature by default has 70 pre-assigned shortcuts (which you can change based on your own key preferences in addition to customizing shortcuts to another ~700 PowerPoint functions!). The McKinsey aligned preset shortcuts is a variation of our customizable shortcut keys feature. Some of our McKinsey alumni customers asked if we could offer a preconfigured set of shortcut keys that align to the shortcuts they used with the Marvin PowerPoint Tools add-in at McKinsey. 

Some of the 70 pre-assigned McKinsey aligned shortcut keys in PPT Productivity...

  • CTRL+ALT+LEFT for alignment to leftmost point of first object
  • CTRL+ALT+RIGHT for alignment to rightmost point of first object
  • CTRL+ALT+UP for alignment to top of first object selected
  • CTRL+ALT+DOWN for alignment to bottom of first object selected
  • SHIFT+ALT+H for evenly distributing selected objects horizontally
  • CTRL+ALT+P to swap position of two selected objects
  • CTRL + SHIFT + 1​ to email selected slides in PowerPoint format
  • CTRL + SHIFT + 2 to email selected slides in pdf format
