PowerPoint tip for navigating graphics

by Carol Marion, Senior Media Designer

You just created a fantastic graphic illustrating the new workflow or process on a PowerPoint slide. Your client will love it! The presentation is tomorrow and you need to make updates. But now it’s hard to select parts of the graphic. Too many shapes in the way. 

PowerPoint has an easy way to see and select any object on a slide. Select any shape and go to the Drawing Tools Format ribbon. In the Arrange group, click on Selection Pane. In the pane, every text box and object is listed. Click on each object to select it. You can drag them up or down in the stacking order, or click the eye icon to hide the object while you work on another. You can even double-click on a listing to rename the object for easier identification. 

Now, go wow that client!
