Reference Shapes

Many of the shape tools within ToolsToo use a Reference Shape as the basis for their function: when aligning left, for example, the selected shapes are aligned to the left side of the Reference Shape.

The Reference Shape can be one of the following:

  • the first shape selected
  • a previously picked up shape, from the same presentation or any other open presentation
  • a predetermined presentation area called Presentation Space that is typically used to indicate the region of the slide to be used for its content
  • the slide

The user specifies which to use as the Reference Shape by clicking one of the four large buttons in the Reference Shape group in the ToolsToo ribbon. You can see the various Reference Shapes in action in the video.
