Drawing Shapes

If you don't find clip art that you like, or if you'd prefer to be the artist, you can draw shapes yourself and include them in your presentations.

To draw a shape:

1.
In Slide view, click one of the drawing tools or menus on the Drawing toolbar that appears (Figure 19.16).

2.
Click and drag with the mouse pointer to create the shape (Figure 19.17).

The outline of the object appears as you drag the mouse pointer.

3.
Click the shape, and choose Colors and Lines from the Format menu (Figure 19.18).
