PowerPoint has several built-in tools to help you ensure that pictures and other objects are perfectly aligned on a slide. This video explores how to use guides, automatic snapping, and other alignment tools to get objects perfectly positioned.
- [Instructor] In this edition…of PowerPoint tips weekly,…I'd like to talk about how to get objects…perfectly aligned on a slide.…Let's build out a slide with several pictures.…So I'll start by making a new slide…here on the home ribbon,…I'll go to the new slide menu…and I just want to choose this title only layout…and I'm going to fill in something in this text box.…I'm just going to make this title say solar panels…and I can click away from that…and now I have my text.…Now, clearly, this title is in the middle of the slide,…but I want to confirm that…and there are a few things we can look at.…
First, I want to select that text box…and I'm just going to drag it left and right…and you'll see, as I drag it left and right,…it sort of pauses in the middle of the slide.…That is the snapping feature,…so it wants to snap in the middle of the slide,…so if I let go here, I know that it's perfectly aligned…in the middle of the slide and that's really handy,…but there are some tools that we can use…to sort of visually confirm that.…
