Guide specification

 

PowerPoint Guides, also called reference lines, are horizontal and vertical lines. Guides are specifically designed to align objects visually. You can show it by clicking View > Guides

In a new PowerPoint presentation, you can press "Alt + F9" to see two default reference lines: a horizontal and a vertical one. You can manually set the layout of the guides, according to your needs.

However, it is not so efficient. To save users time and efforts, iSlide creates "Uniform Guides". A variety of commonly used guides are listed on iSlide "Uniform Guides", allowing you to click and apply.
