Aligning an Object in Relation to the Slide
Certain objects, such as SmartArt, will sometimes refuse to be moved (including by nudging) after you have applied a
3-D Quick Style with a perspective view. To move such an object, click Edit in 2-D on the SmartArt Tools Format tab.
You can then move the object. Afterward, you can click Edit in 2-D again to toggle it back to its regular 3-D appear-
ance. Charts are quirky that way too; before you can nudge a chart, you have to Ctrl+click it to select it.
Nudge buttons are not available on the Ribbon. However, if you would like, you can add them to the Quick Access
Toolbar, or you can customize the Ribbon to include them. See Chapter 22, “Customizing PowerPoint,” for more details.
Aligning an Object in Relation to the Slide
You can align objects in relation to the slide itself. For example, you might want an object
to be centered vertically and horizontally on the slide. To align a single object in relation to
the slide, follow these steps:
1. Select the object.
2. Click Format
Align Objects, and make sure the Align to Slide com-
mand has a check mark next to it. If it doesn’t, click the command to place one
3. Click Align Objects again if the menu is not already open and choose one of the
horizontal alignment commands: Align Left, Align Center, or Align Right, as
shown in Figure 9.19.
Choose an alignment for the object in relation to the slide.
4. Click Align again and choose one of the vertical alignment commands: Align
Top, Align Middle, or Align Bottom.
