PPT Productivity add-in's Lock Objects PowerPoint feature lets you lock any shape, object or placeholder on a PowerPoint slide. This is how to lock powerpoint objects to prevent editing.
Shapes, objects, images and tables cannot be locked by standard PowerPoint, but using PPT Productivity add-in for PowerPoint you can:
- Lock images: Lock images in PowerPoint to prevent them from moving - you can also lock them to the Slide Master
- Lock shapes: Lock shapes in PowerPoint - you can lock single shapes or grouped shapes on PowerPoint slides
- Lock logos: Lock logos in PowerPoint - lock logo files to your slide or to your PowerPoint Slide Master so the logo appears correctly on every slide
- Lock textbox: Lock PowerPoint textbox position so you can edit text but keep the position fixed
- Lock objects: Lock any other PowerPoint objects too - PPT Productivity's Shape locker feature lets you lock any object including PowerPoint tables to your slides
Locking objects in PowerPoint prevents you (or others!) from accidentally moving or editing them.
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. But 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.
