Working with Guides

Let's start with the basics -- what are Guides? Consider Guides as a Grid on your slide that you create -- each single Guide can be moved, added, or deleted. Guides also have snap options that are always on -- once the Guides are made visible on the slide, all objects that venture close enough to them just snap. Along with Rulers and Gridlines, Guides help you position your slide objects with more precision, and you can make them work for you.
Adding More Guides

Once you have made Guides visible on your PowerPoint slides, they show up in the same position on all other slides within the presentation. You'll find that only two Guides -- one horizontal and one vertical Guide are visible at first, and these two Guides intersect at the center of the slide. Most of the time, this might work for you, but you can actually add more Guides since these can help in positioning slide objects better across successive slides.
Outline View

The Outline view in PowerPoint 2016 provides access to your presentation's text outline through the Slides / Outline pane on the left side of the PowerPoint interface. The Outline view displays all the text contained within the title and text placeholders of your slides and is one of the ten views in PowerPoint 2016.
Guide Options

Among the many features in PowerPoint 2016, there are some that are more useful than the others. Options for using Guides are certainly vital. Many users are not aware of all the capabilities that Guides offer. For example, Guides can be added through the right-click menu. You can add new Guides that are offset to your existing Guides. And Guides need not be grey in color -- you can choose from 10 colors.
Hierarchical Guide Options

Enabling Guides for your presentation slides helps ensure that your objects are easily aligned, and also in the same relative position in successive slides. But just enabling Guides is more like getting started. There's so much more you can do, such as customizing the Guides themselves using hierarchical options.
