Smart Selection gives you a powerful and flexible new way of working with shapes in PowerPoint.
However, when you start out a Grunt Pro-trial, by default Smart Selection is not activated. When starting a Grunt Tools license, the opposite is the case.
Here is how you activate or deactivate Smart Selection:
1. Head to the Grunt tab in PowerPoint and select Settings.
2. Click on the Settings icon and set the "Override selection with Smart Selection" to on (green).
