Learn PowerPoint 2010: No Fill for Shapes in PowerPoint

January 28, 2011

After learning how to add different fills for shapes in PowerPoint 2010, now its time to learn how to remove any fill from shape so that your shape only has an outline without a fill. Whenever you insert a new shape into a PowerPoint slide, it is filled with a solid color by default (or fill may be different depending on the Theme applied to your presentation). Most of the time, you may leave that unaltered, but it's easy to remove any fill.

Learn PowerPoint 2010: Add Slide Background Fills to Shapes in PowerPoint

January 27, 2011

You have already learnt how to add different fills for shapes in PowerPoint 2010. Just like the Pattern fill option, there is one more hidden shape fill option which you can't access from Shape Fill gallery. The Slide Background fill option is different from other shape fill options because instead of filling something into the selected shape, it makes the slide background area behind the shape visible into the selected shape.

Learn PowerPoint 2010: Add Pattern Fills to Shapes in PowerPoint

January 27, 2011

In this series on fills for shapes, I have already explored solid fills, gradient fills, picture fills, and texture fills for shapes in PowerPoint 2010. Now I show you how you can use the Pattern fill option. If you are a PowerPoint old-timer, you will remember that Microsoft removed this option in PowerPoint 2007 although it existed in PowerPoint 2003 and previous versions. With PowerPoint 2010, they bring back this option but they have buried it in a dialog box rather than including it within the Shape Fill gallery.
