I’ve been using Google Slides recently. My impression of it is positive.
I imported a PowerPoint presentation and found that it imported some shapes that it appears unable to create. It can even manipulate them as if they a native shape.
Another feature I found is being able to select more than one shape at time with shift-click. Although the display doesn’t show the extended selection, when I copied them with the Slides menu copy, I could paste them on another slide with Ctrl-V. That allowed me to copy some complex decorations from one slide to the next. The paste put the shapes in the same position on the new slide.
I’m still learning some of the advanced features like themes and master slides.
There’s plenty to explore!
