Learn PowerPoint 2010: Add Pattern Fills to Shapes in PowerPoint

Created: Thursday, January 27, 2011, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 5:09 am



In this series on fills for shapes, I have already explored solid fills, gradient fills, picture fills, and texture fills for shapes in PowerPoint 2010. Now I show you how you can use the Pattern fill option. If you are a PowerPoint old-timer, you will remember that Microsoft removed this option in PowerPoint 2007 although it existed in PowerPoint 2003 and previous versions. With PowerPoint 2010, they bring back this option but they have buried it in a dialog box rather than including it within the Shape Fill gallery.

Learn how to add (or change) a pattern fill to a selected shape in PowerPoint 2010.
