We're excited to announce with PPT Productivity you can now lock shapes/ objects in PowerPoint!
What does the Lock Shapes function do?
With our new PowerPoint Shape Locker function you can lock any shape, object or placeholder on a slide. ‘Locking’ the object prevents you (or others!) from accidentally moving it.
You can also lock shapes to your Master Slide layouts! This means if someone accesses the master slides in a presentation, the shape lock will prevent them from accidentally moving, removing or editing the shape. For example, to make sure the copyright text appears on all slides in a presentation, you can add this to the master slide and lock it into position.
Can I unlock shapes that have been locked?
Yes! Shapes that have been locked in your PowerPoint presentation can be unlocked easily if you are using PPT Productivity Power Tools.
How can I get the PowerPoint Shape Locking functions?
Standard PowerPoint does not give you the ability to lock shapes or objects on your slides. If you are already using PPT Productivity Power Tools, you should see the new Shape Locking tool appear on the top ribbon on the PPT Productivity tab in the ‘Shapes’ group.
