Design Shapes: The Circle, The Sun
Design Shapes: The Circle, The Sun

Long, long ago I talked about circles and had wanted to bring up this amazing shape back to focus again. It has been a while, but the circle is as important as ever, and will always be. Why have people, over the years, played around with circles? What is it about a circle that draws people across lands? Probably, the circle was the most important shape known to ancient man and represented the sun. And the sun showed up brightly in the sky, and represented a new beginning, every single day!

Infographics and the Presentation Revolution: by Vikas Agrawal
Vikas Agrawal

'A picture says a thousand words' is perhaps a hackneyed truism, but infographics are proving it right all over again in the digital age. Infographics transform complex facts and figures into simple images and depictions which enable viewers to grasp difficult concepts instantly and make easy comparisons. These colorful, mesmerizing visual tools masquerading as work actually make learning fun. If you want to engage the audience with creativity and flair at your next presentation, you should consider using infographics. If you aren't entirely convinced, here is some information to consider.

Formatting Outlines for Shapes - Weight

Formatting Outlines for Shapes - Weight

We have explained the basics of formatting shape outlines in PowerPoint 2016. Now we take you further ahead to explore how you can change line weight to make the outlines thinner and thicker. So why would you want to alter the weight of an outline? There are many reasons -- more often than not, you may want a line that's almost invisible or very thin -- this lets your audience focus on other areas. At other times when you want the attention of your audience to focus on a particular line, then you can do so by thickening its weight. In this tutorial, we will also cover compound lines such as those that encompass double or triple lines.

Formatting Outlines for Shapes - Dash

Formatting Outlines for Shapes - Dash

We have already explored how to format shape outlines and change their weight. In this tutorial, you will learn how to apply a Dash style to shape outline. A dashed line can have plenty of variations: from a line with fewer dashes to ones with longer or smaller dashes, or even alternating small and long dashes.

Formatting Arrows (Arrowheads)

Formatting Arrows (Arrowheads)

PowerPoint provides two types of shapes: open and close shapes. Shapes, such as rectangles, circles, etc. are closed shapes. Regular line shapes, such as straight lines, curves, scribbles, etc. are open shapes. Arrowheads can be added only to open shapes. That's because an arrow needs a pronounced, visible beginning and end.

Gradient Outlines

Gradient Outlines

PowerPoint 2016 provides plenty of options to format Shape Outlines -- this tutorial explores an attribute that's rarely associated with shape outlines but can provide a surprisingly different look, especially when applied to lines that are thicker in weight. This attribute, Gradient Outlines is not accessible from the Shape Outline gallery in the Ribbon but directly from the Format Shape Task Pane that we will explore later on this page.

Tell Me

Tell Me

Everyone who uses PowerPoint has faced this situation: you know what you want to do with a slide or a slide object, but you don't know where to find the related option in PowerPoint! PowerPoint 2016 has a new feature called Tell Me that will tell you what you need to do! Tell Me is a text field that you can see in PowerPoint 2016 after the last Tab of the Ribbon.
