Merging Shapes in PowerPoint
- Use any shapes you need to build your desired shape—it does not matter if they overlap, but make sure to cover any gaps you don’t want.
- Select all of your shapes—the formatting of the shape you choose first in this step will apply to your entire shape once it’s merged.
- Select Merge Shapes from the left of the ribbon on the Format Pane.
- Choose Union.
- This will merge the shapes you’ve used into one unified shape.
