The newest versions of PowerPoint provide five options within the Merge Shapes gallery. While four of the five options either remove or retain something, the fifth option known as Fragment finds common ground by keeping everything. Yes, it discards nothing at all. In fact, it “fragments” each possible division caused by overlapping shapes and turns them into many small shapes.

Learn more about the Fragment command in the following tutorials; choose your version of PowerPoint:
