Join David Diskin for an in-depth discussion in this video Keyboard and mouse tricks, part of PowerPoint Tips and Tricks for Business Presentations.
Let's conclude Chapter 7…with some keyboard and mouse tricks that will save you time and frustration.…I am sure you know about Copy and Paste, but we can use our mouse to create…clones of a selection in much the same way.…Let's say I want to create another star.…I will select one, and rather than using Ctrl+C and V, I will drag it while…holding the Ctrl key.…When I let go, this creates a clone of the original.…If I want to create a number of similar shapes, like lines and rectangles, I can…lock on what's called Drawing mode.…
Here is the Shape icon for a rounded rectangle.…I will right-click on the Shape icon and choose Lock Drawing mode.…Now as I click and drag and let go, I will create multiple rectangles.…This feature will stay on until I press Esc.…By the way, if you want to create an object with a perfect height and width…ratio like the circle, hold down Shift before you let go the mouse button.…That will confine the height and width to a perfect ratio.…
Remember that you can select multiple objects and then do something at the same…
