Adding AutoShapes

Click the AutoShapes button on the Drawing toolbar.

Click an AutoShape category (in this example, Basic Shapes).

Click an AutoShape.

INTRODUCTION

Rather than drawing your own shapes on your slides, you can choose from dozens of predrawn shapes, called AutoShapes. Among the AutoShapes catalog, you can find callout shapes, block arrows, and basic shapes, such as triangles.


TIP

Setting a Fill Color

You can set the fill color or line style for the AutoShape before drawing it on the slide. To do so, click the Fill Color button on the Drawing toolbar to change the fill color, or click the Line Color and Line Style buttons to change line color or style (for help, see the preceding task). You can now draw an AutoShape using your selections. You can also apply formatting options to a shape you have already created.


Click and drag on the slide to draw the shape.

Release the mouse button; the shape is created.
