This tutorial is part of a shortcut series where we cover a breadth of time-saving techniques. For this episode, we'll be working with shapes. I'll explain how to use the PowerPoint interface as well as your keyboard to quickly create, edit, swap and layout shapes.


While there are a number of tips in this video it does just skim the surface on a wide array of PowerPoint shape functions and shortcuts. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at GhostRanch Communications for all things presentation design, sales enablement and graphics related.

Steve Sheets, Technical Director

Steve is a designer with high expectations for a final product but he tends to obsess over process too. He likes to know the many ways to get things done, the advantages of each and their oh so scary pitfalls. Perhaps that's why he has a Mac and a PC?

"Workflows are one of the few times in life where the best way tends to be the easy way, the trick is figuring out what's 'easy' for your specific situation."
