By Peter Weverka

Chances are a PowerPoint connector will need adjusting to make it fit correctly between the two shapes on your PowerPoint slide. PowerPoint lets you click to select your connector and follow these techniques for adjusting it:

  • Change the shape of a connector: Drag the yellow diamond on the connector. As you drag, the connector assumes different shapes.

  • Change the connector type: Right-click the connector, choose Connector Types, and choose Straight Connector, Elbow Connector, or Curved Connector on the submenu.

  • Handle arrows on connectors: If the arrows on the connector aren’t there, are pointing in the wrong direction, or shouldn’t be there click the Shape Outline button, choose Arrows, and select the arrow you want.

  • Change the color, style, and line width of a connector: Click the Shape Outline button on the (Drawing Tools) Format tab.
