Microsoft yesterday announced a new feature for Office Insiders that will allow them to easily create work-in-progress diagrams and models without adding a watermark. Sketchy Shapes is an outline style that can convert regular shapes to sketchy shapes.
Here’s how Sketchy Shapes work:
- Build your slide and select the shapes you want to apply a sketchy style to. Go to the Shape Format tab and then the Shape Outline dropdown. Hover over the Sketchy” options and select one of the sketchy line styles.
- Select the shapes you want. Go to the Shape Format tab and then the Shape Outline dropdown. Hover over the Sketchy options and select None.
- If you’re working on a bunch of sketches, rather than applying a sketchy style to each shape as you go, you can set the sketchy shape styles as your default shape.
If you are an Insider with Office for Windows Desktop 1907 (Build 11901.20018) and Office for Mac 16.28 (19070300), you can now try out Sketchy Shapes is available in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
