When inserting shapes to the slide, you will find some shapes have one or more yellow dots. We can change the shape by changing the position of the yellow dot. The yellow dot is called “handle”.
Quiz: Which of the following two hexagons is the real regular hexagon?
(Check the answer at the end)
Then, how can we adjust the handles?
Tips and Tricks
1/ Segment [horizontal or vertical]
A 0.0 value usually represents the left or upper boundary of a shape, and a 1.0 value represents the right or lower boundary of a shape.
Valid values correspond to valid manual adjustments.
If you can only manually drag the adjustment handle half the width of the shape, the corresponding maximum adjustment value is 0.5.
For shapes like callouts and connectors,
0.0 and 1.0 values represent the rectangular boundaries defined by their start and end points.
Negative values and values greater than 1.0 are valid at this time.
The adjustment value 1.0 corresponds to the shape width. The maximum is 0.5 or half the width of the shape.
The value is expressed in degrees (°). If the specified value exceeds the range of -180 to 180, it will be converted to the value in the range.
The circle percentage in the PPT below can be easily made using “Adjustments Editor”
Click iSlide > Design Layout > Adjustments Editor
Click insert > Shapes and insert Hollow Arc and Hollow Circle respectively
Set the handle parameters of [Hollow Arc]. Here are what we set: 1 「180° 」；2「 90° 」；3「 0.1 」
Adjust the fill color and set the Outline as [no outline]
Set the handle parameters of [Hollow Circle] and keep them the same as [Hollow Arc]. We set [0.1] in the example
Adjust the fill color
Align the two shapes to overlap them completely
In addition to the above shapes, there are lots of shapes that have handles.
Can you tell which shape has the most handles?
The more handles, the more editable the shape.
Where are the handles?
There are many shapes that contain invisible handles.
In addition to the five-pointed star above, can you find out other shapes contain hidden handles? Just have a try.
[Answer of the quiz]
The hexagon that comes with PPT is "false hexagon"
Let’s check it out
Click insert > Shapes and press [Ctrl + Shift] to insert a hexagon proportionally
Put this hexagon in a perfect circle
You can find that there exist gaps between two points and the circle. So it is not a real regular hexagon.
Let’s draw a real regular hexagon
Set the width and height of the regular hexagon and keep them the same
Set the parameters as shown in the picture
Let's look at the regular hexagon after adjusting the handle, which is perfectly tangent to the circle.
