PowerPoint has a repertoire of various types of shapes that can be formatted by resizing, rotating, etc. When you select most shapes, you get eight resizing handles and a single rotation handle. In addition, some shapes also have one or more yellow diamonds — these enable you to change some facets of the selected shape, or in some cases you can change the entire shape.
