Snap Objects

You can also arrange objects relative to each other while moving them around on the side using the smart guides. These guidelines appear when you drag one object near the center or edge of another nearby object.

  1. Click and drag an object using the alignment guides that appear based on other objects on the slide.
  2. Release the object while snapped to one of the guides.
