As seen in the picture, how do I quickly align them into 4 by 5 grid?

Microsoft Office 2016 X64, Windows 7 SP1 X64.

• For each row: select the shapes in the row, then choose Format | Align | Align Middle.

For each column: select the shapes in the row, then choose Format | Align | Align Center.

Select all shapes in each row and group.

You now have one group per row.

Select all of the shapes and choose Format | Align | Distribute vertically.

Ungroup each set of shapes.

Repeat, but this time select all shapes in each column and group, then Format | Align | Distribute horizontally. Ungroup.

Done.
