Product/Version: PowerPoint 2007 for Windows

OS: Microsoft Windows XP and higher

PowerPoint 2007 makes it easier to draw a semi-circle than in PowerPoint 2003 and previous versions, but it still isn't as intuitive. However, the steps in this tutorial will make it easy for you:

  1. Launch PowerPoint 2007 for Windows. Most of the time, PowerPoint will open with a new slide in a presentation. PowerPoint 2007 users can change the slide layout to Blank (or Title Only) by selecting Home tab | Layout | Blank (or Title Only) option.
  2. Under the Home or Insert tab of the Ribbon, choose the Shapes button to view the Shapes gallery that you can see in Figure 1.
  3. Shapes gallery
