How to Reorder Objects in PowerPoint 2013

organize-puzzle-shows-arranging-organizing-27851570When you build a design on PowerPoint, you can keep adding objects to it. Even if it’s a complex design you’re making, it just means that you get to include a lot of objects in it. So how do you do this? One way is to reorder your objects. It could be time consuming if you don’t know how to but you can also use a shorter way. In PowerPoint 2013, they have this new feature!

Just follow these steps:

  1. On the Home tab, in the Editing group, click Select, Selection Pane to display the Selection task pane on the right.
  2. Either select an object on a slide or select it in the Selection pane.
  3. Drag it upward to move it forward. Drag it downward to move it backward

    This feature is pretty lame compared to the terrific layers capability of PowerPoint 2011 for Mac, which in spite of its date seems to be the more recent program. Still, thanks forpointing it out, as it’s way better that clicking everything and sending it back until you finally find the hidden object you want to work on!
