Group, Nudge, and Reorder Shapes: Reorder Shapes and Slide Objects in PowerPoint

Reorder Shapes in PowerPoint

If your PowerPoint slide has umpteen shapes or slide objects, you may find that some of these objects are hidden or overlapped. Or you probably do not know if there are any objects hidden behind the large shape or picture on your slide? How can you tackle this issue? It’s easy to solve this problem if you know how to work with Reorder options. These Reorder options allow you to bring forward any shape or slide object so that it stays right on top of all other objects. Similarly, you can send any shape or slide object behind everything else on your slide.
