SmartArt is a great new feature that Microsoft added in PowerPoint -- yet many users want to convert their SmartArt graphic to bulleted text, or even to individually editable shapes to manipulate further. Yes, you can convert SmartArt to individual shapes, but do remember that this is a one-way process, and you lose any editability for the SmartArt graphic from that point of time. However, converting to shapes does mean that you have complete control over moving, resizing, deleting, or formatting individual shapes. Follow these steps to convert a SmartArt graphic into shapes in PowerPoint 2013.

You can actually move some shapes around within the SmartArt graphic if you want -- this sort of creative freedom lets you adapt existing SmartArt layouts to your liking to create something new.
