Align using shortcut keys

The Customizable Shortcut Keys for PowerPoint feature can be used for alignment activities.

To assign shortcut keys:

  • Go to PPT Productivity tab > Settings > Shape Alignment, and tick "Align to first selected shape rather than outmost shape".
  • Then Shift+click on each alignment button to assign your shortcut key, OR filter for commands named "FirstSelected" in the Shortcut Key Manager (PPT Productivity tab > Manage Custom Shortcut Keys).
Please note: The Format Shapes Toolbar has been updated in June 2021. The video on this page shows the previous version of the toolbar. Learn more about the updated Customizable Format Shapes Toolbar.
