Microsoft Office PowerPoint enables you to create various types of objects and graphics on your virtual slideshow. For instance, you can insert photos, graphs and even shapes. The program includes dozens of built-in shapes, allowing you to create anything from basic circles to 3-D cylinders. Once you create the shape, PowerPoint gives you options to move, rotate or resize it as desired.
1. Navigate to the PowerPoint slide to which you want to add a 3-D cylinder.
3. Click the "Shapes" button in the ribbon. A list of shapes appear in a drop-down menu.
4. Click the 3-D cylinder shape, located in the Basic Shapes section. The menu closes and your cursor changes to a plus symbol, indicating that you are now in drawing mode.
5. Click and hold your mouse down on the area of the slide where you want to insert the cylinder. Drag your mouse to adjust the length and width of the cylinder. Release the mouse button.
- Resize the cylinder by clicking it once to select it and clicking and dragging one of the corners to your desired size.
- Rotate the cylinder by clicking it once to select it and clicking and holding the green circle at the top of the cylinder. Drag the green circle to rotate the cylinder. Release the mouse button to finish.
- Move the cylinder by clicking and dragging it to your desired position.
- Change the color of the cylinder by clicking it, clicking Shape Fill in the ribbon and choosing your desired color from the drop-down menu.
