Make changes to a Design Ideas slide in PowerPoint

I’m loving using the new Design Ideas slide designs in PowerPoint. However, I found myself wanting to make changes to it and it took a bit of working out before I managed to do it.

Turn on the Selection Pane

The first thing you will need to do is turn on the Selection Pane.

To do this:

  1. From the Home tab click the Select button (it’s more or less near end of the Ribbon on the right).

2. The Selection pane will become visible. A list of each of the objects on the slide will be shown. If you are unsure of the name of the object you are wanting to make changes to just click each object. PowerPoint will show which object it is by selecting it on the slide.  For example, ‘Oval 13’ below is the small blue circle.

3. Once the object is selected you can change the formatting, or delete it.
