Improved Smart Guides
PowerPoint 2013 makes it easier than ever to precisely align and evenly space objects with
one another. When you drag an object to position it, dotted guidelines called Smart Guides
(or alignment guides) appear, showing its relationship to other objects on the slide and
allowing you to easily snap the object into precise alignment and spacing. Earlier versions
of PowerPoint had alignment commands, but you had to specifi cally issue them; Smart
Guides present themselves automatically whenever they might be needed. Figure 20.4 shows
an example. Smart Guides are covered in Chapter 24, “Using SmartArt Diagrams, Clip Art,
and Pictures.”

Alignment guides make it easier to align objects and text on slides.
You can also create permanent drawing guides on the slide masters, making it easier to
position content on slide masters and layout masters. Chapter 22, “Working with Layouts,
Themes, and Masters,” covers modifying slide masters.
