Display No Fly Zone

The No Fly Zone feature can be used to set a boundary for placing text on your slide. Also known as a Title safe or Action safe border for Powerpoint slides (a reference to the old content display rules for Televisions).

Useful when your company has branding rules or team guidelines on text placement, or if your company template has image or color surrounds that you need to keep text away from.

Consulting firms typically use the No Fly Zone feature to ensure all slides in a presentation appear consistent in the layout of content.

The feature shows or hides a cross hatch shading which denotes the boundary. Note that the No Fly Zone is a visual guide for editing only (similar to the standard Grid and Guides feature in PowerPoint). The No Fly Zone shading will not appear when presenting or printing your slides.

Toggle the No Fly Zone on or off for your presentation using the feature button, which is in the Slides group on the PPT Productivity ribbon. When the No Fly Zone is displayed, selecting the 'Align to left' feature on the Format Toolbar will align a selected textbox or shape to the No Fly Zone border.

Productivity Tip

You can customize the size of the No Fly Zone to your preferences or required company standards in Settings > No Fly Zone
