Shapes tend to be similar to each other. You may work with one shape and then realize that you used the wrong one. Typically, users create a 5 pointed star when they need a star with 4 or 8 points, and that was just one example! Let's explore another scenario: you worked on a shape and applied effects, animations, and fills to this shape. Later you realize that you used a wrong shape, or perhaps the client wants you to change the shape but retain all the effects, animations, and fills! You may want to delete the existing shape and start over again, and that is a long drawn process. However, but you don't have to do that for you can change any existing shape to another by following these steps in PowerPoint 2016:
