Changing the Colour of a Shape

When you draw a shape it is filled with the default fill colour  and has the default line border.  To change the fill colour, click on the shape and then click on the small black arrow beside the Fill Colour icon to display the fill options.

Your presentation’s standard colours are displayed so if you choose one of these colours it should match the rest of your presentation. If you click on More Fill Colors you can choose from an array of 127 standard colours plus some greyscale shades or make your own custom colour.  The Fill Effects option lets you pick two-tone shades, line patterns, textures or even pictures to use inside your shapes.
