To begin, let’s start with the basics. What are Guides in PowerPoint? Consider Guides as individual lines from a grid on your slide that you create. Every single Guide can be moved, added, or deleted. Guides also have snap options that are always on. Once the Guides are made visible on the slide, all objects that venture close enough to them just snap. Along with Rulers and Gridlines, Guides help you position your slide objects with more precision, and you can make them work for you.

To learn more, choose your version of PowerPoint. If we do not have a tutorial for your version of PowerPoint, explore the version closest to the one you use.
