You will discover several methods for altering items in your PowerPoint presentation, such as resizing, rotating, copying, and more, during this Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 training lesson video. You will also discover how simple it is to clone and remove items. Shape fill, shape outline, and dashes are other topics that are treated here and are all equally important.(Changing Objects in 2016 PowerPoint)
Good to see you again in PowerPoint 2016. In this sixth module, we discuss how to work with objects. This is section two, where I’ll demonstrate a few techniques for editing your items. There will be instances where you’ll wish to alter the size of your item. You could wish to copy, rotate, or remove it. These actions are regarded as editing. So let me demonstrate how to use those for you.
Okay, let’s start with a brief recap of a selection strategy we skipped over in part one. However, if you wish to pick everything, you should select everything in this general manner in all of your Office products. Press the letter A while holding down the Control key. Your choose all is that. So, just keep that in mind. All of your things will be impacted by anything you do right now. So I’m going to deselect it right now.
Now that I have so many of them here, I want to just go ahead and delete a couple of them, so let’s talk about removing objects first.
Therefore, all I have to do is pick an item and press the Delete key on the computer. All you have to do is that. By the way, that would also apply to a slide. So, for example, let’s assume you are over here and you clicked on slide number two. You have the option to erase a slide by selecting it with the right click, or you can just use the Delete key on the keyboard. So, just keep that in mind.
I’ll return to slide four now.
So allow me to remove one more.This line will be deleted.So, see how I choose the line and then obtain the end control handles.
That one will be removed.(Changing Objects in 2016 PowerPoint)
I’ll proceed to remove the smiling face from this page after that.Now that we have a few items, we can kind of work with them.
The control handles we’ve been discussing will now be shown on the corners and also on the sides of the object if I choose it.
Also keep in mind that you may modify the size of your item using them.
So you may change two borders at once if you find yourself in a tight spot.You may make it appear either like this or like this by climbing to the top or bottom.
In other words, you can genuinely make this thing whatever size you choose.
And keep in mind that moving an item is as simple as clicking in the middle of it, holding down the mouse button, and dragging.
You’ll be able to move it if you do that.
You may have also noted that an arrow is located just above here.
It seems to be a rounded, wavy arrow.Now, if you wanted to rotate your item, that is what it is for.
See whether you can drag and rotate this item if you simply click it and hold.
So, if that’s what you want to do, you may spin completely.
However, you may put it wherever you choose.Now bear in mind that everything you do will effect all of the things you have selected if you have more than one object selected.Okay?
So, simply click on that one if you want to change it. Let’s now spend a few moment discussing object copying.I want to duplicate this item just here, but drawing another one would make it difficult for me to acquire the exact same dimensions.
Right-clicking now gives you the option to copy.
Certainly excellent, that.
The keyboard shortcuts are preferred by certain users.
Your copy is Control-C.
Your shortcut is Control-V—V for Victor.But here’s a quick tip that might occasionally make things go more quickly for you.
if you click and drag an object while depressing the Control key on your keyboard.
The moment you release the mouse, you’ll have two identical figures.
So, that’s a big assistance.
Drag the item while holding down the Control key, then release the mouse button.
You’ll only be able to move it if you let go of the Control key first.
Just be aware of that.(Changing Objects in 2016 PowerPoint)
I’m going to erase the one I just created right now.Okay, one more brief example I’d want to show you looks great with the star, for instance.
I’d want to get rid of some of this other things by moving it out of the way.I’m going to demonstrate the process of replicating to you right now.
And any object will work with this.If you press the letter D while holding down the Control key, you may do so as many times as you like.Duplicate is the letter D.
Now you can see that I repeated these stars.
I’ll bring this flag all the way over here.So if I wanted to line these up and place them straight across, I may combine them together to form one entity.
I have several objects, thus I am able to accomplish all of those things.
