3. Magical Boolean Operations
Boolean operations refer to the union, combination, split, intersection, and subtraction between shapes. In PowerPoint software, we call it the merge shape tool. In theory, we can rely on Boolean operations to make any shape and edit any creative text.
Let me give you an example so that you can be more clear and understand how to use this.
A lovely cloud was drawn like this. In theory, you can use Boolean Operations to draw as many shapes as you want. Of course, the text can also be made cooler.
Of course, pictures can also be created by using Boolean operations.
This picture is actually made from three parts. Firstly, you need to choose a natural picture and place it at the bottom. Secondly, you need to inset a shape you like, then tap the word “FEEL THE NATURE” in a text box. Now, Right-click on the text and the shape at the same time, and choose “Merge Shape”, then combine it. Isn’t it cool and funny? As long as you give full play to your imagination, you can create unique effects.
4. Highlight Text

5. Very Useful “F4”
In Office, F4 key is a special existence. As long as you master it, your office efficiency will increase rapidly. F4 is a shortcut key, which means to repeat the operation of the previous step. For example, if we enter the word “happy” in the previous step, and then press the F4 key, this word will be copied continuously. If you need four identical circles, and ensure that they are aligned with each other and the distance is equal. Would you choose to paste and copy them one by one? Let me show you how to complete these steps quickly.
You only need to press “Ctrl” and “Shift” at the same time, and click with the left mouse button to drag the position of the circle. Now, just press F4 key 3 times, you will get 3 circles of the same size and the same spacing. In fact, this F4 key is the same as the format painter in Word. You can also use F4 key to quickly make tables.
