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.

Change margins toggle

Quickly change margins in PowerPoint Text Boxes and Table Cell margins, using the PPT Productivity Change Margins Toggle feature. Choose from Normal, None, Narrow and Wide margins.

How to change margins in PowerPoint? PPT Productivity makes it easy. Adjust margins in PowerPoint text boxes or table cells with the Change Margins Toggle. Click the button repeatedly to cycle quickly through the options.

Great to quickly adjust margins on a PowerPoint table to optimize size, or when trying to fit text in a shape you don't want to resize.

In standard PowerPoint, margin settings are each controlled separately for left, right, top and bottom. Accessing the standard PowerPoint margin settings is via right click > Format Shape and adjusting each value. This can be 6 or more clicks, plus multiple attempts to choose your preferred margins!

PPT Productivity's adjust margins feature makes it faster and is a great timesaving shortcut to set margins in PowerPoint quickly.
