Align multiple shapes to left, right, top, bottom, middle (horizontally) or center (vertically) on your PowerPoint slide.
These features let you quickly access alignment buttons to align selected shapes in PowerPoint. Align objects on your PowerPoint slide in less clicks. Use the alignment features to align text boxes, shape, images or other objects. Align objects in PowerPoint relative to each other or to the position on the screen (e.g. center text box will anchor it to the horizontal center of your slide).
Default behavior for this feature is to align to the most extreme positioned shape, consistent with Microsoft's default in PowerPoint. However, you can temporarily or permanently override the default and force alignment to the first shape you select using PPT Productivity's Align to first selected feature.Productivity Tip
If you select a single object and an align feature, it will dock to the edge of the slide's text boundary. Read more about the No Fly Zone feature and setting your text boundaryShortcut Keys
