A line (outline) in PowerPoint contains both points and segments. It is easy to understand the relationship between points and segments using a connect-the-dots analogy. The points represent the dots whereas the segments represent the lines you draw between the dots. Among points and segments, we have already explored the types of points in PowerPoint 2016. We now explore the two types of Segments in PowerPoint 2016: Straight and Curved. Segments can be edited, and you can also convert a straight segment to a curved segment and vice versa, as you will learn in this tutorial.
