Group, ungroup and regroup

Easily Group, Ungroup and Regroup shapes or objects in PowerPoint

PPT Productivity exposes common formatting features to the Format Shapes toolbar, providing one click access to save you time. The Grouping features are in the Arrange group on the Format Shapes Toolbar.

Group, Ungroup, Regroup enable fast editing, for example when stretching or shrinking shapes. If you grouped several shapes but need to ungroup them for separate editing, you can select any of the previously grouped shapes or objects on the slide and use the Regroup button to reform the group.

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.
