At TLC we use the QAT (Quick Access Toolbar) in PowerPoint on every computer in our fleet so our design team members can work seamlessly.
Two features added to our master QAT minimize the number of clicks needed to get to the Action Pane needed at the time:
1. Format Shape with focus on the Shape Options.
2. Format Shape with focus on the Text Options.
The top icon is technically the MORE OPTIONS > MORE ALIGNMENT OPTIONS > TEXT ALIGN MORE OPTIONS DIALOG.
This amazing QAT button opens the FORMAT SHAPE action pane on the right to the TEXT OPTIONS tab, when any text box is selected.
The bottom icon in the above image opens the FORMAT SHAPE action pane on the right to the SHAPE OPTIONS tab. When searching for the icon to add in the Customize QAT dialog, look for FORMAT OBJECT > FORMAT SHAPE > OBJECT FORMAT DIALOG.
