Edit Shapes

PPT Productivity PowerPoint add-in has 180+ time saving features. The Edit Shapes features let you quickly edit shapes e.g. to make them the same height and width, to paste shapes and 'hammer' them into the same place on multiple slides. You can also stretch shapes to align end points, or to fill gaps between shapes so that they meet.

Most of the Edit Shapes features can all be found on the Format Toolbar for PPT Productivity Power Tools users (this includes the Free trial). The Format 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.

There's also a Color Palette toolbar to make recoloring easy, resizing features, shortcuts for adjusting outline thickness, margins in cells shapes and tables and much more.

PPT Productivity's features let you spend less time formatting so you can focus on the story. Scroll down to read about the features, or navigate using the menu at left.

Copy/ paste position, size

PPT Productivity's Copy Position, Size and Paste Position, Size features for PowerPoint are a dynamic time saving duo! Quickly position a shape in the same place across PowerPoint slides by setting the position, size (and column sizes for tables) of a selected shape or table.

Copy Shape Position remembers the preferred location or size. Paste Shape Position applies that location or size to each shape to be adjusted. Together these features put shapes or objects in the same position across multiple PowerPoint slides. Easily align objects on different slides.

The Copy/ paste position, size features are included in the Position feature group on the Format Toolbar.

Productivity Tip

Copy Position, Size and Paste Position, Size features work on tables, to remember and set identical column widths! Also works for fixing slide titles across your presentation. Use it in conjunction with the Slide Titles feature, which adjusts font style and font size of slide titles.

Shortcut Keys

All PPT Productivity features can be used via the Customizable Shortcut Keys for PowerPoint feature. You can update the shortcut keys to any preferred available combination, but to get you started we have set up the following defaults (easy to remember given the similarity to Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V for standard copying and pasting!):

  • PowerPoint Keyboard Shortcut to copy shape position: Alt+C
  • PowerPoint Keyboard Shortcut to paste shape position Alt+V
