Once you place an AutoShape on a PowerPoint slide, you may format it by changing its fill or outline -- or you may add animation to it. Later if you realize that you used a wrong AutoShape -- maybe you used a star in place of a triangle, you may be tempted to delete the original AutoShape altogether and start from scratch by adding a new AutoShape, and change its fill and add animation to it. The good news is that you need not work so hard -- you can change any existing AutoShape to another using these steps:
