Storyline allows you to control several aspects of an object’s appearance, including the fill, line color, line style, and shadow. If you’re working with a picture, you can also control the image attributes and color customizations. And if your object contains text, you can also control the text attributes.

These options are found on the Format Shape window (if you're working with a shape, caption, or textbox) or the Format Picture window (if you're working with a picture, screenshot, or character),

There are a few different ways to access this window:

  • Select one or more objects on a slide. Then select the Format tab, and click the arrow in the lower-right corner of the Picture Styles or Shape Styles portion of the toolbar:
  • Or, right-click a selected object, and then chose Format Shape or Format Picture.
  • You can also reach this window from some of the formatting menus, via a “more options” choice. For example, if you select a shape, then click the Format tab and choose Shape Outline > Weight, you’ll see an option called More Lines, and that opens the Format Shape window.

When the Format window appears, you can use any of the tabs on the left side of the window to set your options.
