With UpSlide's Arrange features, formatting in PowerPoint becomes effortless. The Arrange function will stop you struggling with the positioning of your objects and pictures, or spending hours trying to align elements.
Arrange your shapes
The Arrange function allows you to position multiple elements in one click in PowerPoint. These elements are called shapes in this article for simplification but they can be all sorts of smart objects, text boxes, charts, icons or pictures.
- Select the shapes you would like to arrange and click the Arrange button. A pane will appear on the right-hand side of your presentation.
- At the top of the pane, you will find the different containers within which UpSlide can propose arrangement solutions. Hover over the options to highlight the different containers. You can add any shape of your own in the slide to form a new container.
- Choose the container in which you would like to arrange the elements. Different solutions to arrange the shapes will be proposed. Select the one you would like to apply.
- In the lower part of the pane you can change the settings of the Arrange function, like displaying across multiple slides, changing the alignment or the margins. For instance, you can click the Split into several slides button and choose a number of shapes per slide: after choosing a container and an arrange solution, the current slide is duplicated as many times as necessary and the selected shapes are split across these slides.
- Close the Arrange pane when you are satisfied with the arrangement of your shapes. They should be perfectly aligned and equally distributed.
Swap two shapes
When your elements are all arranged you might still need to swap the position of some of them. You can use our Swap tool to do so:
- Select two elements that you would like to swap. Please note the tool works for two shapes only.
- Click the arrow on the Arrange button to open the drop-down menu.
- Choose whether you want to swap their top-left corner position or their center position.
