How to Move PowerPoint 2007 Objects on a Slide

Although there are several ways to position PowerPoint 2007 objects on a slide, the easiest way to move them is to drag them to a new position.

1

Select the object on the PowerPoint slide.

Move the pointer over the object and click when you see the four-headed arrow. (Click the perimeter of text boxes to select them).

2

Hold down the mouse button and start dragging.

As you drag, a shadow object shows you where the object will land when you release the mouse button.

Hold down the Shift key as you drag to move a PowerPoint 2007 object horizontally or vertically in a straight line. Hold down the Alt key as you drag to override the Grid settings so you can move the object by smaller increments than the grid allows.

3

Release the mouse button when you have moved the PowerPoint object to the right place.

The object appears where you placed it.
