Editing Outline Icons in PowerPoint

Slide Content

The slide explains how to properly edit outline icons in PowerPoint. It suggests that users should change the outline color of the icons easily and adjust the width of the icon outline by changing the shape weight. The concepts of "Do" and "Don't" are illustrated with examples: for "Do," icons are shown with varied outline colors and thicknesses, demonstrating customization; for "Don't," one icon is filled with color which makes it unreadable, and another is shown with an overly thick line, indicating poor readability.

Graphical Look

  • The slide background is white, providing a neutral canvas for text and graphics.
  • The title of the slide, "Editing Outline Icons in PowerPoint," is prominently featured at the top in bold black text.
  • Two main content areas divide the slide: 'Do', with a turquoise background and white text, and 'Don’t', with a red background and white text. These act as headers for their respective sections.
  • Screenshots of PowerPoint interface elements – the 'Shape Outline' dropdown menu and the 'Shape Weight' selection tool – serve as visual aids under each content area.
  • Sample icons are displayed below the interface screenshots to show the effect of the described editing techniques.
  • Arrows are used to connect the interface element screenshots to the corresponding icon examples, creating a visual flow from instruction to illustration.
  • The footer is excluded from the description per instructions.

The slide uses a combination of flat design for the icons and screenshots, and contrasting colors to differentiate between recommended practices and common mistakes. Clever use of arrows creates a clear visual path from problem to solution.

Use Cases

  • During a workshop on graphic design principles within presentation software like PowerPoint.
  • As part of a training module for new hires who will be using PowerPoint frequently in their roles.
