1.3.3 Shapes


Shapes are the primary way to represent data on a slide. Different types of shapes such as placeholder shapes, pictures, and graphs allow users to add a variety of content to a slide. Shapes on a master slide define common data for groups of shapes.

See the Shape Types (section 2.7) for records pertaining to shapes. Also see Office Drawing Binary File Format Structure Specification, [MS-ODRAW], for more information about shapes.
