Shape tool

You can add different shapes to your presentation by clicking from the left toolbar the shape selector icon (square and circle). Currently there are four default shapes (circle, square, star and diamond)



 

EDITING THE SHAPES


  • After adding a shape or multiple shapes you can edit them seperately or all at once. You can multi-select by keeping SHIFT-button pressed from the keyboard once clicking the shapes or dragging your mouse over all the shapes.
  • You can resize the shape by dragging from the corner or the side (white dots; see picture below).


  • Once you have the shape or shapes selected a toolbar will appear at the top of the slide editor. 
    • You can lock elements to make them inaccessible to editors. The element can be unlocked from properties toolbar, that can be accessed from top right corner button.
    • You can copy elements.
    • You can paste the copied element.
    • You can delete element (also by pressing backspace)
    • You can bring element forward
    • You can bring element backward
    • You can edit the color of the element
    • You can link internally (to other page) or externally to outside webpage
    • You can undo changes
    • You can redo changes.



  • By lowering the opacity of the element you can see all other content "under" the top element.



DIFFERENT WAYS TO USE SHAPES


  • Shapes can be used in many ways to make the slides better. Here is an example of use of white shape behind the text to separate it from the background. The white box's opacity has been dropped to 50% and it has been resized to fill the screen from top to bottom. 
  • Two smaller shapes have been added between the page title and the body text. The grey shape's opacity has been dropped down to 40%.
