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.

Same height, same width

Set any shape to the same height or same width as first selected shape in PowerPoint. Or set both same height and width as first selected shape on your slide in a single click.

One of the most frequently used PPT Productivity features! Quickly make shapes the same size in PowerPoint. The same height and same width buttons let you quickly align width and height to match any subsequently selected shapes to the first shape selected in PowerPoint. PPT Productivity has three feature buttons:

  • Match height of first shape selected in PowerPoint

  • Match width of first shape selected in PowerPoint

  • Match height and width of first shape selected in PowerPoint

Easily resize multiple shapes or objects at the same time. The first shape selected will determine the height and or width to be matched. You can also make images the same size in PowerPoint using this feature.

The Same height, Same width and Same Height+Width features are part of the Resize group on the Format Toolbar.

Productivity Tip

Combine with Select Same Size and Select Same Color PowerPoint features to keep all your shapes scaled proportionately.
