A fill is something that is contained within a PowerPoint slide object such as a shape. Some shapes may contain a solid fill, a picture, or even nothing. The last option is called “No Fill”, and results in a shape that’s entirely transparent unless it has a visible outline. Typically our tutorials address shapes but the techniques remain similar for almost all slide objects. These links provide more details depending upon the version of PowerPoint you may be using

To learn more, choose your version of PowerPoint. If we do not have a tutorial for your version of PowerPoint, explore the version closest to the one you use.
