Select shapes matching any attribute of the selected Shape on your slide.

Looking to select all objects of same type in PowerPoint? Similar to the Select same color and size feature, this feature offers 12 additional attributes that can be selected to match on:

  • Shapes: same type, height, width, or shadow attributes
  • Shape colors: fill color, line color or font color
  • Font: font name, size, or boldness (i.e. whether bold, not bold, or mixed)
  • Text alignment: vertical or horizontal alignment
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.
Productivity Tip

The Select Shapes by Attribute feature is very handy for updating multiple elements of your slide quickly. If you have used an incorrect shade of color for shape outlines and need to update it, if you need to make all italicised font bold font instead... This feature will save you a ton of time when you need to apply some last minute updates.
