Use the Grid and Guides
There are times when you may need a guide to help you line up objects on a slide. PowerPoint offers
a feature that helps you position and align objects with precision. The grid looks like graph paper
lines on your slide; guides run across the entire slide and can help you line objects up with details on
the slide background. You can also adjust the granularity of the grid. If you need to make small, fine
positioning, you can make the distance between gridline points small, or make the distance large for
easier alignment. You can also have objects snap to the gridline for easy and fast alignment.
