Editing Outline Icons in PowerPoint

Slide Content

The PowerPoint slide titled "Editing Outline Icons in PowerPoint" provides guidance on customizing icons in PowerPoint presentations. It illustrates proper techniques for changing the outline color and width of icons, advising to easily modify the outline color and to adjust the icon outline width by altering the shape weight. Additionally, it warns against filling outline icons with color and making the outline too thick, as this can make the icon unreadable. Each point is exemplified with visual icons representing the do's and don'ts, making the instructions clear and straightforward.

Graphical Look

  • A teal header banner with the slide title in white font.
  • Two sets of graphical instructions; one labeled "Do" on a teal parallelogram and one labeled "Don't" on a red parallelogram.
  • A series of example icons showing the effect of different outline colors and weights, with corresponding descriptive text.
  • Arrow-shaped pointers leading from the descriptive text to the associated icon examples.
  • Color palettes and line thickness sliders are depicted as screenshots from PowerPoint software, with annotations.
  • The slide employs a coordinated color scheme that visually separates the "Do" and "Don't" instructions.

The slide is visually balanced, with clear demarcations between instructional areas and examples. Its clean design uses symbolic color coding—teal for "Do" and red for "Don't"—to reinforce the instructional content effectively.

Use Cases

  • During a workshop or tutorial on PowerPoint design techniques, to teach attendees how to edit and customize icons.
  • In a corporate training session for new employees to maintain consistency in presentation design across the company.
  • As a reference slide within a style guide for a team or company, ensuring all presentations follow best practices.
  • In a webinar about visual communication, illustrating how small design changes can impact the clarity and aesthetics of icons in presentations.
