Here’s a quick PowerPoint time saver: Press CTRL + D to duplicate an object.
- Insert, resize and move object (i.e., shape or picture) to desired location on slide.
- With the object selected, press CTRL + D. A duplicate will appear, slightly offset from the first.
- Move the duplicate to preferred distance from original; keep this object selected.
- Press CTRL + D again. The next duplicate (triplicate?) appears positioned equidistant from the last.
Repeat final step, as necessary.
Tip: CTRL + D is a CUA (common user access) instruction in many Graphic and Desktop Publishing programs (e.g., Visio, Photoshop).
