Chapter 4. Drawing and Modifying Shapes > Drawing and Resizing Shapes

Drawing and Resizing Shapes

PowerPoint supplies 155 different AutoShapes, ranging from hearts to lightening bolts to stars. The two most common AutoShapes, the oval and the rectangle, are available directly on the Drawing toolbar. The rest of the AutoShapes are organized into categories you can select from the AutoShapes menu on the Drawing toolbar. Once you have placed an AutoShape on a slide, you can resize it using the sizing handles. Many AutoShapes have an adjustment handle, a small yellow diamond located near a resize handle that you can drag to alter the shape of the AutoShape. For precision when resizing, use PowerPoint's Format command to specify the new size of the shape. In addition to drawing AutoShapes, you can insert AutoShapes, such as computers and furniture, from the Clip Art task pane.
