Lock or Unlock Objects

PPT Productivity PowerPoint add-in has 100+ time saving features. The Lock Objects feature let you easily lock shapes, tables, images, or other objects to your slide to prevent movement. Plus you can also unlock them. Standard PowerPoint does not offer the ability to lock or unlock objects.

Lock objects

PPT Productivity's Lock Objects feature lets you lock any shape, object or placeholder on a slide.

Shapes, objects, images and tables cannot be locked by standard PowerPoint, but they can with PPT Productivity. Locking the object prevents you (or others!) from accidentally moving or editing it.

Shape locking feature will lock the shapes or objects for anyone accessing the slide. The shape or object will be locked for editing even if the person viewing it does not have PPT Productivity installed.

Productivity Tip

How to lock a textbox but allow editing of the text? Using a textbox enables you to lock a shape while leaving the text accessible for editing. If you want to lock both the shape and the text, converting your text box to a table or inserting a 1x1 table to hold the text (before locking) will result in both shape and text being locked.
