A line (outline) in PowerPoint contains both points and segments. In this tutorial, we will show you how segments (the line area between one point and another) work. We will also explore the two types of segments: straight and curved. You can edit these segments and also convert a straight segment to a curved segment and vice versa in PowerPoint 2007, as explained in this tutorial.
To convert a Curved Segment into a Straight Segment, follow these steps:
You can also click anywhere on a segment and drag it as required to change the structure of the shape. PowerPoint automatically adds a
new vertex at the point you dragged the segment, as shown in Figure 9 (compare with Figure 7,
shown earlier on this page).
