Centering Diagrams on the page RRS feed

  • Question

  • In 2007 there was a nice feature to allow you to center your diagram on the page.  It was on the shape menu and the option said center drawing.  Great feature when you were building a slide sequence over a number of pages where your diagram would progressively get more complex.

    Anyone know where this feature has gone too on the new ribbon UI.  I realize that I can Ctrl Shift W to go to full page mode Ctrl A to select all the drawing then Ctrl X Ctrl V to paste to the center works, but thats an lot of work for something that used to be two clicks!

    Anyone got any ideas?

  • The command is not available on the ribbon, but is still available by customizing the UI.  For example you can add it to the Quick Access toolbar as follows:

    1. Select File > Options > Quick Access Toolbar

    2. Under Choose commands from:, select Commands Not In The Ribbon

    3. Select Center Drawing > Add

    It does not create a nice icon for you, but it does work.
