How to quickly work on shapes in Excel using the Selection Pane.

This includes quickly preventing all shapes in a worksheet from resizing when columns or rows are resized.

This will save you hours of time when working with many shapes across many spreadsheets.

Shapes include many objects in Excel:

  • Charts
  • Pivot Charts
  • Slicers
  • Timelines
  • Buttons
  • Icons
  • Images
  • Almost everything else that overlays cells in the worksheet.
