We have already showed you how to use fills for shapes in PowerPoint. A fill is something that is contained within the confines of the shape. Similarly, shapes have another attribute known as the “line” or the “outline”. A line is the perimeter surrounding a closed shape or the line itself within an open shape.

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.
