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.

Chevrons same angle

Enhanced Feature: In January / February 2023 PPT Productivity is rolling out an update. The Make Chevrons same angle feature will be replaced with the new Chevrons and Angles Painter which lets you adjust angles and tips of chevrons and other shapes.

Quickly adjust the tip of selected chevrons, arrows or pentagons to the exact same angle as the first selected shape on your PowerPoint slide.

Chevrons (also known as block arrows) are great to use in diagrams such as project phases. But once you adjust the length, the angles of the tips can be inconsistent. This feature matches your chevron angles to make them consistent on the selected slide.

Start by selecting two or more chevrons (feature only works if two or more shapes are selected).

With chevrons selected, click the Set Chevrons to Same Angle button. The feature will align angles of all chevron tips.

Note that the first shape must contain an adjustable angle - otherwise it cannot work out the angle for the rest of the shape. This feature can also be used to set or match the angles on arrows, pentagons and parallelograms on your PowerPoint slides.

Productivity Tip

PPT Productivity's downloadable libraries includes a chevron library file which contains commonly used vertical chevron list and horizontal chevron list slide layouts, to speed up your work. You access these easily from the Slide Library toolbar. Read more about downloading free shape libraries.

Shortcut Keys

All PPT Productivity features can be used via the Customizable Shortcut Keys for PowerPoint feature. You can create a PowerPoint shortcut to make chevrons the same angle.
