An outline has two meanings in PowerPoint — the first is an outline of a presentation — this is the story, framework, or content. The second meaning for outline is a border for a shape or any other slide object, or even just a straight line or curve. Typically our tutorials address shapes but the techniques remain similar for almost all slide objects. One of the attributes you can choose for an outline is to have a dashed or dotted patterned line. These links provide more details depending upon the version of PowerPoint you may be using:

Microsoft Windows

Apple Mac
