Editing outline icons in PowerPoint

Slide Content

This PowerPoint slide, titled “Editing outline icons in PowerPoint,” contrasts recommended and non-recommended practices for icon customization. On the 'Do' side, it suggests that you can effortlessly change the icon's outline color or modify the icon outline's width by adjusting the shape weight—clarifying that these are simple and effective modifications. On the 'Don't' side, the guidance is to avoid giving outline icons a color fill and to not use excessively thick lines, as these can make the icon unclear and difficult to decipher.

Graphical Look

  • The title is in large bold text at the top-center of the slide.
  • Two main sections are visually differentiated using colored banners: A teal "Do" and a red "Don't."
  • Below each section, explanatory text provides advice on handling outline icons.
  • Sets of three icons are used to illustrate the correct (left) and incorrect (right) methods.
  • Arrows pointing rightwards from the text to the icons highlight the connection between the description and the example.
  • The 'Do' section icons show progression from a simple outline to a colored outline and then to different outline weights.
  • The 'Don't' section includes icons filled with color and one with an overly thick outline.
  • Each section's explanatory text is displayed in a white text box with subtle shadows for a sense of depth.

The slide is well-organized, with a visually clear distinction between the ‘Do’ and ‘Don’t’ sections. The use of icons and color coding effectively conveys the correct and incorrect methods of editing outline icons.
