Rearrange shapes / pictures in Powerpoint 2010
PowerPoint supports multiple types of content, and invariably different content coexists in a drag. While it's ideal for each content to stand out separately, there are times when you can't or when overlapping content is desirable. In such cases, it is important that you can determine which content stays above which content.
PowerPoint has arranging features to help you achieve this goal. When working with arranging features, you should think of each content as a separate layer and that these layers are overlapped. To organize the content, you basically have to play around with these layers.
The following steps will help you organize the content in a presentation slide.
Step 1 - Select one of the contents and haveGo to the Organize group under the Format ribbon.
Step 2 - Click on the selection pane to open the sidebar Selection and visibility .
Step 3 - Select one of the sidebar rows to highlight the corresponding content in the slide.
Step 4 - Use the rearrange arrows in the sidebar to move the content layer up or down.
Step 5 - Click on the 'Eye next to each content in the sidebar to activate its visibility on the slide.
Instead of using the Selection Pane option, you can also right-click the content to move it up or down. When you right-click, in addition to moving the layers one step at a time using Bring Forward or Return , you can also move the content directly to up or down using Bring to Front or Send to Back respectively.
