Create and use shapes

2
00:00:04,471 --> 00:00:07,607
You can use shapes like
rectangles, circles or stars

3
00:00:07,607 --> 00:00:11,077
and lots of created ways to add
visual interest to your slide.

4
00:00:11,745 --> 00:00:14,180
To place a shape on the slide canvas

5
00:00:14,180 --> 00:00:17,050
just click the "Shape" button
and select the one you want.

6
00:00:17,050 --> 00:00:20,553
You can add lines, arrows, geometrical shapes,

7
00:00:20,553 --> 00:00:24,024
speech bubbles or even draw
your own custom shape

8
00:00:24,024 --> 00:00:25,759
using the drawing tool.

9
00:00:28,028 --> 00:00:31,064
Change the shape size by
dragging one of its handlers,

10
00:00:32,899 --> 00:00:36,403
or drag in the middle to move
to a new location on the slide.

11
00:00:36,403 --> 00:00:38,738
As you move the shape
around the slide canvas

12
00:00:38,738 --> 00:00:40,073
a line (with) guides appear

13
00:00:40,073 --> 00:00:42,709
letting you know when you
place it in the center of the slide

14
00:00:42,709 --> 00:00:45,478
or when you've align it with
other objects on the slide.

15
00:00:45,979 --> 00:00:48,648
When several objects align upon the canvas

16
00:00:48,648 --> 00:00:51,951
additional guides appear
to let you know when equally space

17
00:00:51,951 --> 00:00:53,119
and when are all the same.

18
00:00:54,154 --> 00:00:56,056
It's easy to change the shapes color

19
00:00:56,056 --> 00:00:58,158
using colors right on the Format bar.

20
00:01:00,860 --> 00:01:03,563
You can also make the shape more transparent

21
00:01:03,563 --> 00:01:05,698
so that what's under the
shape can show through.

22
00:01:06,766 --> 00:01:09,035
You can also change the shape border

23
00:01:09,035 --> 00:01:11,204
call "Stroke" in the format bar.

24
00:01:11,204 --> 00:01:14,908
Choose the saddle line,
a dash line or none at all.

25
00:01:16,810 --> 00:01:19,913
Then set the stroke thickness and color.
