Insert Shapes

PPT Productivity PowerPoint add-in has 100+ time saving features. The 'Insert Shapes' features include Chevrons, Harvey Balls, Miniature slides and single click access to commonly used shapes.

Most of the Insert Shapes features can be found on the Format Toolbar for Power Tools users. Some of these features are available from the PPT Productivity Ribbon for Plus Tools and Basic Tools users. 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.

PPT Productivity's features let you spend less time formatting so you can focus on the story.

Harvey Balls

How to add Harvey Balls in PowerPoint? It's easy with PPT Productivity add-in. Add standard size 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, empty or full Harvey Balls. Or choose a custom fill Harvey Ball and entering a % value (e.g. enter 33% for a 1/3 filled Harvey Ball). You can align, resize and recolor the Harvey Balls easily. You do not need a special Harvey Ball font.

PPT Productivity's Harvey Balls icons include standard and custom fill sizes.

How to use Harvey Balls? Harvey Balls icons (also known as pies, moons, moon balls or status balls) are often used in PowerPoint presentations to denote status. Harvey balls can be used for project tracking status, option assessment and more.

Standard Harvey Ball sizes include 0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100%. PPT Productivity's Custom Harvey Ball sizes can be specified as any number between 0-100. The filled portion of the ball reflects the portion complete.

Harvey Balls will be inserted onto your slides as shapes. Unlike some other Harvey Ball solutions, PPT Productivity doesn't reply on a Harvey Ball font to show the balls. This means your Harvey Balls will appear correctly for any users viewing the presentation (even if they do not use PPT Productivity).

The color of the Harvey Balls can be easily changed. Once inserted into your presentation, the Harvey Balls behave as shapes so you can quickly change the Harvey Balls color or enlarge the balls. You can easily align the Harvey Balls on your PowerPoint slide using PPT Productivity's alignment shortcuts or standard PowerPoint alignment features.

Harvey Balls can be added to your slide using the Harvey Ball buttons on the PPT Productivity Ribbon or the Harvey Ball button on the Format Toolbar.

Productivity Tip

Easily update Harvey Balls on your slide. If one or more Balls are selected prior to clicking the button, any selected Harvey Balls will be updated, rather than a new ball being inserted

Shortcut Keys

All PPT Productivity features can be used via the Customizable Shortcut Keys for PowerPoint feature. You can easily create PowerPoint shortcut keys for Harvey Balls.
