Product/Version: PowerPoint 2010 for Windows

OS: Microsoft Windows XP and higher





You have already learned that there are essentially three types of connectors that you can use to link shapes in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows. Also, you can add any of these three connectors (Straight, Elbow, or Curved) as per your requirements. However, what will you do if you added a connector of one type and later realize that you should have used a different type? You need not delete that connector, and draw another one because PowerPoint allows you to change from one connector type to another fairly easily:

  1. Carefully select just the connector (not the shapes that it connects). Then, right-click to get the contextual menu shown in Figure 1.
  2. Contextual menu brought up by right clicking the connector
    Figure 1: Contextual menu brought up by right clicking the connector
  3. From the contextual menu, choose the Connector Types option to bring out the flyout menu you see in Figure 2. Click on the connector type that you want to change to.
  4. Choose new connector type

  5. Figure 3, below shows how we changed a Straight Connector to an Elbow Connector (compare to Figure 1, shown earlier on this page).
  6. Straight connector is changed to an Elbow connector

  7. Save your presentation often.
