Lock or Unlock Objects
PPT Productivity PowerPoint add-in has 100+ time saving features. Lock/Unlock Objects features let you easily lock shapes, tables, images, or other objects to your slide to prevent movement (you can also unlock them). Standard PowerPoint does not offer the ability to lock or unlock objects.
Lock objects to the Slide Master
Shapes, objects tables and images can be locked to the Slide Master, so that the locked shape can appear consistently through the document.
Our PowerPoint Shape Locker enables you to lock any shape, object or placeholder on the Slide Master (in addition to any normal slide). For example, to ensure the copyright text appears on all slides in a presentation, you can add this to the master slide and lock it into position.
Shape locking works for anyone accessing the slide. The shape or object will be locked for editing even if slide users do not have PPT Productivity installed.
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.
