PowerPoint 2013 for Windows provides so many new features, but one of them is essentially such a small addition that you may completely miss exploring it. And that would be sad because this feature can open up so many possibilities. We have already explored the Merge Shape commands-while 4 of the 5 commands within this category have been available since PowerPoint 2010 for Windows, the Fragment command is new for this version. Unlike other Merge Shape commands that retain or remove overlapping and non-overlapping areas of multiple shapes, the Fragment option discards nothing at all. In fact, its “fragments” each possible division caused by overlapping shapes and turns them into many, smaller shapes.

You can see examples of the Fragment option in play within Figure 1, below. The three examples on the top area of the slide are separate shapes placed over each other. The shapes that you see at the bottom of the slide are the same shapes with the Fragment option applied, resulting in a multiple, small shapes.

Figure 1: Fragment option creates smaller shapes

Now you really cannot make out the small shapes within Figure 1 above, since all the fragmented shapes are placed bordering each other. So we spread out all the new shapes created using the Fragment option in Figure 2, below. The graphic on the left is the result of using the Fragment option, and the graphic on the right shows the shapes separated apart so that you can see them all individually.

Figure 2: Fragmented shapes, separated

Here’s another example: we placed three basic Circle shapes overlapping each other as shown towards the left of Figure 3, below. With these shapes selected, we could use the Fragment command that we explain later in this tutorial to create an individual shapes from the overlapped area as shown towards the right in Figure 3.

Figure 3: Sample showing use of the Fragment command

Once you finish reading this tutorial, do view the sample presentations embedded on the bottom of this page to see more samples of shapes that use the Fragment command.

Select any two or more shapes as shown in Figure 4. With these shapes selected, access theDrawing Tools Format tab on the Ribbon (highlighted in red withinFigure 4).

Figure 4: Drawing Tools Format tab

Note: The Drawing Tools Format tab is a Contextual tab. These tabs are special tabs in the Ribbon that are not visible all the time. They only make an appearance when you are working with a particular slide object which can be edited using special options.

Save your presentation often.

Do remember these guidelines for any tasks that involve the usage of this command. The Fragment command:

Creates new shapes from overlapping area of shapes

Creates new shapes from in-between empty areas

Retains as shapes any areas that do not overlap

Subtracts nothing

Retains formatting of first selected shape

The sample presentations below show how we used different shapes placed next to and above each other, and then united.

Merge Shape Commands In Powerpoint 2013 For Windows

Explore the Merge Shape commands in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows. These commands allow you to create your own shapes in PowerPoint easily.

For many users, the Merge Shape commands may be assumed as a new feature in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows. However, these were available in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows through the Combine Shapes commands. Yes, these were not available by default from any of the Ribbon tabs in PowerPoint 2010, but you could customize the QAT to get these commands. In PowerPoint 2013, Microsoft gave the new Merge Shapes name to these commands and also gave them a place right within the Ribbon. And now, these commands are no longer limited to shapes as they also work with text and pictures.

Accessing the Merge Shape Commands

To access the Merge Shape commands you first need to insert some shapes on your PowerPoint slide. In this example, we inserted a Rectangle and a Circle. Make sure you place the shapes in a way so that they overlap each other, as shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1: Two overlapped shapes

When the shapes are selected, you will see the Drawing Tools Format tab on the Ribbon (highlighted in

red

within Figure 2). Make sure that this contextual tab is activated.

Note: The Drawing Tools Format tab is a Contextual tab. These the Merge Shapes button (highlighted in

within Figure 3). This brings up the Merge Shapes drop-down gallery (highlighted in

blue

within Figure 3).

Group, Ungroup, And Regroup Shapes In Powerpoint 2024 For Windows

Learn how to group, ungroup, and regroup shapes in PowerPoint 2024 for Windows. You can also use convenient keyboard shortcuts.

Product/Version: PowerPoint 2024 for Windows

OS: Microsoft Windows 7 and higher

So what exactly does grouping mean? And what is ungrouping and regrouping going to do further? The moment you select a slide object such as a shape on a PowerPoint slide, you will see some selection handles, which indicates that the shape is selected. Select another shape while the first one is still selected and you see two sets of selection handles. If you need to similarly select many shapes on a slide fairly often, this sort of selection may become cumbersome and waste so much time. In that case, it’s best you select all the shapes you need to work with, and then combine them into one “group” of shapes.

There are several reasons to group shapes and other slide objects:

You may want to animate several slide objects. Rather than selecting each of them individually and then animate them, you can select them all together as a group and animate them. This is a great approach if you want to apply the same animation effect to all shapes, but works best for some animation effects, and not for all.

Grouping also helps in rotating few shapes placed next to each other to a certain angle — at times like these, you’ll be happy to know that grouping lets you rotate all these shapes at one go.

Once you no longer need your shapes to be grouped, then ungrouping and regrouping shapes will also help you to a large extent. PowerPoint 2024 for Windows makes it simple to do these tasks. Let us explore the differences between these three tasks:

Grouping is the process of making a single selection of a disparate or similar set of slide objects, so that when you select it again, you end up selecting the entire group rather than a single object. A group has a single set of selection and rotation handles (compare the individual elements on the left ofFigure 1 to the unified, single group on the right).

Figure 1: Individual shapes (left) and the same shapes within a group (right)

Ungrouping: Lets you break up a grouped object back into individual objects. If we were to ungroup the object to the right ofFigure 1 (see above), it would result in looking like the set of objects shown towards the left of the sameFigure 1.

Regrouping: Sometimes, you need to ungroup an object just so that you can make one small change to a particular slide object. Regrouping remembers whatever objects comprised the original group, and reconstitutes the original group without you having to select all individual slide objects all over again.

Grouping Shapes

Select shapes (or any other slide objects) that you want to group in PowerPoint 2024 for Windows. Then follow any one of these three alternative processes:

Figure 2: Grouping shapes

You can also group shapes by pressing the Ctrl + G shortcut key.

Once the shapes are grouped, you can change the attributes for them as a single grouped entity as required. For example, if you rotate an entire group, all individual objects in that group will rotate together as a single object. Look at Figure 3, where you can see individual shapes rotated 45 degrees each (look at unrotated stage in Figure 1). Compare this with the group on the right which was also rotated by 45 degrees, you’ll see that the rotation on the right looks much more predictable.

Figure 3: Rotation of 45 degrees applied to individual shapes (on the left) and a group (on the right)

Ungrouping Shapes

Select the group you want to ungroup. Then follow any of these three alternative options:

Figure 4: Ungroup option selected

You can also ungroup shapes by pressing the Ctrl + Shift + G shortcut key.

Regrouping Shapes

To regroup (reconstitute) any hitherto ungrouped group, select any one of the shapes within a previous group. Thereafter follow any of these two alternative processes:

Figure 5: Regroup to reconstitute your ungrouped group

Tip: Are the Ungroup and Regroup options grayed out? Remember, Ungroup is only available when the selected object is a group. Similarly, Regroup is only available as an option if any selected shape or slide object was part of a previously constituted group.

Highlight Text In Powerpoint 2013 For Windows

Learn how to highlight text in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows. Highlighted text can recreate the look of colored, transparent ink on text.

First of all, PowerPoint 2013 or any of the previous versions do not support text highlighting. And before we explore getting over this limitation, let’s ask ourselves why do we need to highlight a text? If you want to emphasize some important words within your slide, then the highlighting may indeed help. However, unlike Microsoft Word, PowerPoint doesn’t have a ready-made tool to highlight text, but you can use Word’s highlighting options as a workaround!

Follow these steps to learn how to highlight a text within PowerPoint 2013 for Windows:

Select the text on your slide, as shown in Figure 1, below. Thereafter copy (

Ctrl

+

C

) the selected text to the Clipboard.

Figure 1: Text selected on the slide

Now, launch Word and create a new document. Then, paste (

Ctrl

+

V

) the copied content within this document. Once you paste, you will see that the Paste Options icon appears, as shown highlighted in

red

within Figure 2.

Figure 2: Paste Options icon

bring up the Paste Options drop-down menu, as shown in Figure 3, below. Here select the  Keep Source Formatting option (highlighted in

red

 within Figure 3) to retain the text formatting from the source PowerPoint slide.

More About Highlighting in Microsoft Word 2013

We recommend that you select the text first in Word, and then choose a highlight color. Alternatively, Word lets you choose a highlight color even when no text is selected. If you do so, the cursor changes to the highlighter icon, as shown highlighted in

red

within Figure 6, below.

Figure 6: The highlighter icon cursor

Now you can highlight text almost as if you were using a conventional highlighter pen with a piece of paper or a book. You can highlight contiguous or non-contiguous areas of text now. The latter is shown in Figure 7 below.

Figure 7: Highlight non-contiguous areas of text

We recommend that you select the text first in Word, and then choose a highlight color. Alternatively, Word lets you choose a highlight color even when no text is selected. If you do so, the cursor changes to the highlighter icon, as shown highlighted inwithin, below.

Now copy (

Ctrl

+

C

) all text back to the Clipboard. Paste (

Ctrl

+

V

) within your PowerPoint slide. Once you paste, you will see that the Paste Options icon appears. Now immediately press the Paste Options drop-down menu, as shown in Figure 8, below. Here select the Keep Source Formatting option (highlighted in

red

 within  Figure 8) to retain the text formatting from the source Word document.

Figure 8: Select Keep Source Formatting option

In Figure 9, below you can see that the highlighted text copied back to PowerPoint. Notice that we pasted text that had both contiguous or non-contiguous areas of highlighted text.

Figure 9: Both contiguous and non-contiguous areas of highlighted text copied back to PowerPoint

Once done, you can copy the highlighting to other text without having to use Word again. You can also remove the highlight altogether right within PowerPoint. Both procedures are explained in our Copy and Remove Highlighting for Text in PowerPoint 2013 tutorial.

Replace Fonts In Powerpoint 2010 For Windows

Replace one font with another across the entire presentation in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows. This will quickly allow you to get rid of problem fonts, and also make large changes at one go.

Product/Version: PowerPoint 2010 for Windows

OS: Microsoft Windows XP and higher

Are you stuck with a presentation that uses strange fonts? Or have you inherited slides where you need to change fonts globally? Fortunately, you don’t have to replace fonts, one at a time with each text box, placeholder, or shape. In this tutorial, we will explore how you can replace one font with another, in the entire presentation using PowerPoint 2010:

Open an existing presentation. We opened a presentation that uses two fonts, Arial andBaskerville Old Face. To make it easier to follow along, our usage ofArial is colored red, and our usage of Baskerville Old Face is colored blue, as shown inFigure 1, below.

This brings up the list of fonts used in the active presentation, as you can see in Figure 4. From this list, select the font that you want replaced with another. InFigure 4, you can see that we selected theArial.

What Font Icons Mean?

Do you see the icons in front of the font names in the Replace Font dialog box? What do these icons mean? Learn more in our Identify Font Types in Windows tutorials. And why is it important to know what these icons mean? One reason to identify them is to know whether they can be embedded or not. Only TrueType fonts can be embedded within PowerPoint.

Why Arial Always Show in the Replace Drop-down List?

You may replace Arial with some other font, or you may have a presentation that does not use Arial at all. Yet, Arial is a stubborn font that refuses to make a graceful exit from the Replace drop-down list! Why? That’s because several PowerPoint templates use Arial for the default bullet symbols, and that’s the reason why you may have to live with Arial refusing to exit!

Single-Byte or Double-Byte Fonts

While you can replace single-byte fonts with double-byte fonts, you cannot replace the other way around. Learn what single-byte and double-byte mean in our Single and Double-Byte Fonts in PowerPoint page.

In Figure 6, below, you can see that both the red and blue colored text containers now no longer useArial orBaskerville Old Face. They now sport the Agency FB font.

Replace Font, and Fonts in Charts

Yes, as you may have found out, the Replace Font feature is completely oblivious of fonts used in charts. This happens for the same reasons why PowerPoint’s spell check ignores charts: all charts are considered as Excel content and PowerPoint just ignores them as far as text matters go!

Ribbon And Tabs In Powerpoint 2010 For Windows

Learn about Ribbon and Tabs in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows. There are so many interface elements within the Ribbon and its Tabs.

Product/Version: PowerPoint 2010 for Windows

OS: Windows XP and higher

Introducing the RibbonRibbon Contents

Introducing the Ribbon

The Ribbon along with its tabs continues its presence (from PowerPoint 2007) in the Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 interface. The Ribbon replaces all the menus and toolbars that were found in PowerPoint 2003 and older versions, although there’s still one menu as part of the File Menu and Backstage View, and one toolbar called the Quick Access Toolbar. All the other options are now found in the tabs of the Ribbon.

Note: Microsoft calls this new interface Fluent, that’s good to know because it sounds impressive!

The Ribbon is essentially a long strip that’s fixed in size (see Figure 1) so that you cannot change its width or height. The Ribbon includes several tabs, and each tab is named as you can see in Figure 1.

Figure 1: Ribbon

Tip – If you want more screen estate for a while, you can quickly hide the entire Ribbon with all the tabs by pressing Ctrl + F1, press Ctrl + F1 again to bring back the Ribbon.

Ribbon Content

The Ribbon contains many interface elements:

Tabs: Ribbon consists of fixed tabs such as Home, Insert, Design, etc. Each tab contains sets of tools to create and edit presentations. By default, the Developer tab is not visible in the Ribbon although you can enable it yourself.

Contextual Tabs are special tabs in the Ribbon that are not visible all the time, they only make an appearance when you are working with a particular slide object which can be edited using special options.Figure 2 shows the Drawing Tools Format tab which is only activated when a shape or another drawing object is selected on the slide.

Group: A group of related tools within a tab is known as a Group. Figure 3 shows the Shape Styles group within theDrawing Tools Format tab.

The More button expands a gallery within a Ribbon tab so that all or more options can be seen.Figure 5 shows you the More Button in the bottom right (highlighted). The two arrow buttons above theMore Button are used to scroll inside the gallery without expanding it (or even after expanding it if the gallery has too many options).
