Once you place a Shape on a PowerPoint slide, you may format it by changing its fill or outline — or you may add animation to it. Later if you realize that you used a wrong form — maybe you used a Star in place of a Triangle, you may be tempted to delete the original Shape altogether and start from scratch by adding a new one, and change its fill and add animation to it. Fortunately, you can replace shapes in PowerPoint. Explore more in the following tutorials.
