If you want to align text or objects in PowerPoint, you may want to use keyboard shortcuts for alignment. Although there are built-in keyboard shortcuts to align text in placeholders or text boxes, you will need to do some customizing to create simple keyboard shortcuts to align objects.
If you have PowerPoint 2019 or 365, you can use the amazing Morph transition to morph one object into another (or multiple objects into other objects). Although you can apply Morph to create movement, you can also use other tricks like changing the size or formatting of text, shapes, pictures, SmartArt, WordArt and charts. Because it’s a transition, not an animation, you’ll need to create two slides to use Morph.
