Adding pre-built shapes to a presentation is not new to PowerPoint 2016, but what you can do with shapes after adding them to a slide has been improved from PowerPoint 2010 to 2016.

- [Voiceover] Perhaps you worked with shapes…in PowerPoint 2010.…Well the shapes that we work with here…in PowerPoint 2016 are the same.…What's new is what you can do with them after the fact…and that's what we're going to explore in this movie…as we continue working with…our Landon Hotel presentation 0404.…If you're catching up, we're on slide two.…And let's say we want to highlight one of these images…by creating our own version of an asterisk.…Well we can do that with shapes.…Let's go first with the Home tab of the ribbon selected…to the drawing group over here…because there is a drop-down for inserting shapes.…
We don't have to go to the Insert tab on the ribbon.…We can get them right from here…and we'll start with a basic shape, an oval.…Give it a click.…Now to create a perfect circle,…we'll hold down the Shift key first and then click…and drag across and down to create our perfect circle,…release the mouse button before the Shift key…and it will stay a perfect circle like that.…Now we're going to add an additional shape.…
