PowerPoint, we teach how to combine shapes easily

PowerPoint presents a large library of forms used for things like creating flowcharts. That's not all, although PowerPoint also allows you to combine and merge these forms to create a unique object.

That is why we will give a fairly complete and very simple tutorial so that you can create and combine shapes in a simple way in the Windows program. You don't have to be a professional so you can achieve it. You just have to follow each of the steps. It will take you a couple of minutes to achieve.

Fusion of forms in PowerPoint

To merge shapes into PowerPoint, you will first have to insert the shapes you want to merge. To do this, go to the "Insert" tab and select "Shapes" found in the "Illustrations" group.

In the drop-down menu that appears, browse the large shape library and select the one you want to use. We will use the oval shape in this example.

Then draw your shape. You can do it by clicking and dragging the cursor.

Repeat the previous steps to insert the following form. Once ready, make sure the shapes overlap.

To merge the shapes, you must first select the two shapes that you want to merge. To do this, hold down the Ctrl key while clicking on each shape successively.

Once you have selected the shapes, you will see a new tab appear, the "Shape Format" tab. Go ahead, select that tab.

In the "Insert shapes" group, click on the "Merge shapes" button.

In the drop-down menu that appears, select the type of fusion you want. You can also hover over each option to preview live.

That's it. Your forms will merge now.

As you have seen, what you have to do is very easy. Just apply each of the steps we have given you and that's it.
