When a shape is inserted within PowerPoint, its default appearance is related to the points that it contains — and you can thus change the actual shape to anything you want. PowerPoint’s native Edit Points tool makes it almost a drawing program that provides you the option to play with vertexes (points), handles, etc. This is very similar to what you would do in Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW. By using the Edit Points tool, you can change a rectangle to a rhombus, or even edit a curved or freeform line differently.
