Edit Shapes

PPT Productivity PowerPoint add-in has 100+ time saving features. 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.

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.

Apply fill with border color

You can change your settings to update both the fill and border / outline of a shape in PowerPoint, with a single click on the Color toolbar.

By default in PowerPoint, changing a fill color only changes the internal color of a shape - you need to change the outline color separately. PPT Productivity enables you to override this by clicking Settings > Color Toolbar and tick Set Line with Fill.

If you apply this setting, each time you click the Fill icons on the Color toolbar, both fill and border colors of your selected shape(s) will be set to the selected fill color. This is a handy shortcut if your preference is matching shape fill and border colors.

Productivity Tip

Ctrl+click when selecting the fill color will override the standard setting and change border color to match. A great option if you only want matching shape outline and fill color for some of your shapes.
