Rarely does a shape look perfect after we've inserted it.…We often have to move it around just to right, resize it, occasionally rotate it…and format it to make it look perfect.…And that's what this video is all about.…Moving shapes is easy: just point, grab it with your mouse and drag it around.…You can point to any shape, grab it and give it a new location.…In the event that your shape is transparent, that is if it only has an outline,…you'll need to grab it by the outline to move it.…
Here is a quick tip:…You can also use your arrow keys to move shapes.…Just like the shape and tap your up, down, left and right arrow keys to move the shape around.…Hold down the Ctrl key for little tiny nudges.…As for resizing the Shapes, we can drag and drop those handles.…Any of the eight handles will do.…If you'd like to constrain the aspect ratio of the shape, then hold down Shift as you drag.…
Rotating is accomplished using the green handle that you see atop every…shape when it's selected.…Just point your mouse to that green handle, grab it and drag it left or right to rotate.…
