How to Align Text Horizontally in PowerPoint 2010

In PowerPoint you can align shapes horizontally or vertically. This can be really practical to align text in the slide accordingly. For example, when we designed the value chain diagram in PowerPoint we needed to align textboxes to the left and this feature helped a lot.

First, we need to select the text shapes to align. Afterwards, go to Format -> Align and then choose Align to Left. This will align the shapes to the shape that is further to the left.

As you can see, the popup allows to choose between different align options.

  • Align Left
  • Align Center
  • Align Right
  • Align Top
  • Align Middle
  • Align Bottom
The first three alignment options will help you to align the text horizontally while the other three in the second group will help to align text vertically.

Then, we can also distribute the shapes horizontally or vertically, which will be very useful to add the same spacing between objects without doing it manually. Automatically PowerPoint will add the same spacing between the top and bottom objects in your selection.
