Editing outline icons in PowerPoint

Slide Content

The PowerPoint slide titled "Editing outline icons in PowerPoint" breaks down the dos and don'ts related to customizing outline icons. The "Do" side recommends changing the outline color for better visibility and adjusting the icon outline's width by altering the shape weight to match the presentation's design needs. On the contrary, the "Don't" side advises against filling the icons with color and warns that excessively thick lines can make the icons undecipherable.

Graphical Look

  • The slide background is white.
  • At the top, there's a sizable, dark gray title text for the slide.
  • Two contrasting colored hexagonal shapes labeled "Do" and "Don't," in green and red respectively, are located beside each other in the upper mid-section.
  • Below each heading hexagon, there are three additional gray hexagon shapes with icons and textboxes highlighting specific points.
  • Each point is illustrated with a screenshot of a PowerPoint menu on the left and an example icon on the right.
  • The icons are monochrome, with one featuring a green outline as an example of customization.
  • The PowerPoint menu screenshots show various color and thickness options.
  • The bullet points under "Do" include "You can change outline color of the icon easily:" and "Or change width of the icon outline by changing shape weight:"
  • The bullet points under "Don't" include "Refrain from giving outline icons color fill" and "Too thick line will render icon unreadable"

The slide has a clear and structured layout, with visual aids such as screenshots and example icons providing a quick understanding of the customization steps. The use of contrasting colors highlights the best practices and common mistakes in editing icons within PowerPoint.
