Chapter 10. Adding Graphical Objects

Graphical elements contribute variety and interest to your slides. One way to add graphical objects is to use the Drawing toolbar (Figure 10.1) which offers tools for drawing lines, rectangles, circles, and so forth. And with the AutoShapes menu (Figure 10.2) you can easily insert predefined objects such as arrows, stars, hearts, and triangles.

The Drawing toolbar appears near the bottom of the PowerPoint window.
