Sometimes just knowing a hack can save a lot of time. So this is one of those tips included in our TLC Creative PowerPoint training programs where someone always exclaims “Really!!” The tip is how to immediately add a perfect shape (same on all sides), ie. a circle, square or triangle. The solution is so simple, there is nothing complex to forget. Ready,
Click the desired shape in the shapes gallery
Click on the slide. Note: just a simple click, no click and drag, no modifier keys, nothing, just click on the slide.
Done! A perfect, equal sided, square, circle, triangle, etc. is added to the slide
And the shortcut to the shortcut!
Hold down the CTRL key and click on desired shape in the shapes gallery
Perfect symmetrical shape is automatically added to the slide!
