Add Solid Fills to AutoShapes

January 3, 2009

Custom tab of the Colors dialog box

Most of the time, you may leave that unaltered, but it's easy to change that color or to even add another fill type altogether such as a gradient, pattern, texture, or picture. In this tutorial, I'll show you how you can change the default fill color to a color of your choice.
