Arrange and Align Shapes

PPT Productivity PowerPoint add-in has 100+ time saving features. 'Arrange and Align Shapes' features include shortcuts to select all shapes matching a selected shape color or size, or by 12 other attributes. Also features to quickly align shapes, including aligning to first selected.

The Arrange and Align Shapes features can all be found on the Format Shapes Toolbar for PPT Productivity Power Tools users (this includes the Free trial). The Format Shapes Toolbar can be redocked to the top, bottom or either side of your screen. You can resize the Toolbar and easily toggle to show or hide features or feature groups.

PPT Productivity's features let you spend less time formatting so you can focus on the story.

Distribute evenly

Evenly distribute shapes in PowerPoint so they each have the same spacing between them. Distribute vertically in PowerPoint or distribute horizontally in PowerPoint with these time saving features (seperate feature buttons for each).

PPT Productivity exposes common formatting features to the Format Shapes toolbar, providing one click access to save you time. Even spacing of shapes on your slide (particularly for repeated shapes like chevrons) make your slides look more polished.

Distribute evenly features are in the Gaps group on the Format Shapes Toolbar.

PowerPoint introduced equidistance markers from 2013, but using the markers is more time consuming when distributing a larger number of shapes.

Please note: The Format Shapes Toolbar which includes these features 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.

Productivity Tip

Combine this feature with the squeeze or expand gaps feature, to perfect your slide formatting.
