  2. 2. wishpond GUIDE The Magic of “Shift” The first trick of Google Slides is the “Shift” key. It does three primary things: 1. When held, allows you to select multiple objects to change their size, move them together, or change their color/border. 2. When held on an existing object or line, or held when creating a new one, resizing becomes standardized. 3. When held on an existing object, rotation is restricted to a perfect multiple of 15 degrees. “SHIFT”
  3. 3. wishpond GUIDE Before you get rolling with aligning your text boxes, you need to first align the text within them. In order to ensure that your text ends up on the same line and matches the box next to it, top and left align it. Matching Text Alignment
  4. 4. wishpond GUIDE The visual appeal of a professional ebook relies on perfect alignment. Google Slides helps you get that perfect alignment with red indicator lines which tell you when one image is centered on another, centered on the slide, and more. Keep an eye out for them. Alignment Lines
