Product/Version: Microsoft PowerPoint 2003
OS: Windows 7, Vista, and XP
You have learned what the Edit Points option in PowerPoint is, and how it works. The Points you see and edit give you control over how you want a shape to look appearance-wise. Even then, sometimes you might find it difficult to edit a certain segment (a part of the line between two points) in a shape because there are no points available to manipulate -- or maybe there are far too many points! PowerPoint provides a simple solution for this problem -- you can add and delete points in a shape.
