Editing Outline Icons in PowerPoint

Slide Content

This slide provides guidelines on how to edit outline icons in PowerPoint. The "Do" section illustrates that you can easily change the outline color of an icon, which means adjusting the color can help the icon blend or stand out depending on your design needs. Furthermore, you can alter the thickness of the icon's outline by modifying the shape weight, indicating that the thickness can be fine-tuned for better visual clarity. The "Don't" section advises against giving outline icons a color fill, as it can make them less recognizable, and warns that using a line that is too thick can make the icon unreadable, highlighting the importance of maintaining an optimal balance for legibility and aesthetic appeal.

Graphical Look

  • The slide has a blue header with the title "Editing Outline Icons in PowerPoint" in large white font.
  • There are two sections divided by color-coded panels: a teal panel labeled "Do" and a red panel labeled "Don't."
  • Each section has a set of icons to illustrate the correct and incorrect ways to edit outline icons.
  • The "Do" section includes representations of PowerPoint interface elements and a pair of icons with different outline colors and weights.
  • Text boxes with explanatory notes accompany the graphical representations in both sections.
  • The "Don't" section includes icons with inappropriate color fill and excessively thick outlines, demonstrating what to avoid.
  • The slide employs directional arrows pointing from the text to the icons, visually linking the explanations with the examples.

The slide uses a clean, professional layout with a mixture of text, icons, and interface graphic representations. The use of contrasting colors for the "Do" and "Don't" sections effectively directs the viewer's attention to the recommended practices and common mistakes.
