PowerPoint gives you complete customization over shapes—merging shapes, changing the curvature of a shape’s lines, and even drawing your own. If you want to do the latter, here’s how.

Draw a Shape in PowerPoint

If you can’t find the shape you’re looking for, then you can draw your own. To do this, head over to the “Insert” tab and then click the “Shapes” button.
