Once you separate the image, you will be able to use the parts in the same manner as PPT shapes. Meaning, you will be able to apply color and special effects to all the pieces of the separated SVG.
For the purpose of this tutorial, we use PowerPoint 2007 or higher, on a Windows PC.
Steps to break apart a SVG image in PPT
Here are the steps to separate a SVG image in PPT. If you need a SVG image to work with, then create one with the Donut Maker.
Step 1: Ungroup the SVG
- Right-click on the SVG image. This will display the shortcut menu.
- From the shortcut menu, select Group. A submenu will appear.
- Within the submenu, select Ungroup.
As a result, you asked to convert your SVG into a PPT object.
Instead of using the shortcut menu, press Ctrl + Shift + G to ungroup a selected object.
Step 2: Convert SVG to a drawing object
- Finally, click Yes to convert your SVG into a PPT object.
After that, you will see your SVG broken apart, similar to the image below.
From here, you should be able to move and format each piece individually. In some cases, you may need to ungroup your SVG twice. Otherwise, you are good-to-go.
So, were you able to complete the task? If not, then give it another shot.
