Editing Outline Icons in PowerPoint

Slide Content

The slide outlines best practices for editing outline icons in PowerPoint. It is divided into two sections: "Do" and "Don't." In the "Do" section, it suggests that one can easily change the outline color of the icon and adjust the width of the icon outline by changing shape weight – explaining that these modifications enhance the icon's visual appeal without compromising clarity. Conversely, the "Don't" section advises against giving outline icons a color fill and cautions that using a line that is too thick will render the icon unreadable – implying that such changes can obscure the icon's details and reduce its effectiveness.

Graphical Look

  • The slide title is in bold and is much larger than the other text, which emphasizes the subject.
  • Two contrasting sections are labeled 'Do' and 'Don't', with distinct background colors in teal and red, which quickly conveys the recommendation versus warning format.
  • A series of clipboard icons are shown with varying outline colors and weights, illustrating the 'Do' and 'Don't' steps in a visual manner.
  • Pull quotes are located below each section, providing a brief explanation in smaller font, enforcing the core message of each recommendation.
  • The clipboard icons are set against grey arrow-shaped banners, which draws attention to the examples of icon manipulation.
  • There is also a small section that appears to show PowerPoint interface elements, likely provided for reference to the actual tools used for icon editing.

The slide has a clean, professional look with a clear distinction between what to do and what not to do through the use of color and spatial organization. The icon examples are simple yet effective in demonstrating the effects of different editing choices.

Use Cases

  • To instruct employees or team members on how to effectively use visual aids in presentations without reducing clarity or impact.
  • As part of a workshop or training session on presentation design, focusing on the dos and don'ts of visual element customization.
  • In a corporate style guide or standard operating procedures for creating consistent and professional-looking presentations.
  • During a tutorial or webinar about advanced PowerPoint editing techniques for designers or non-design professionals wanting to improve their presentation skills.
