Using Grid Lines

In PowerPoint, choose Slide Master by going to View>Master>Slide Master

Right click on the screen and select Guides>Add Vertical/Horizontal Guide. This will add an orange guideline that will be “locked” on the screen while you’re designing in regular view. This means you can’t move the guideline around accidentally.

You can also add movable guidelines in regular view by going through the same right-click procedure and adding vertical or horizontal lines.

Use guidelines to standardize spaces between content boxes, to align columns, or to standardize border margins.
