Part 3 of the Shape Merge real-world, presentation design examples is a Key shape.

Goal is to create a single PowerPoint shape of a classic battery that can be stylized in any way using Point’s features.

Shape(s) 1 – two rounded corner rectangles to create the battery shape.

Shape 2 – the power/lighting shape is a standard shape in PowerPoint. Rotate, size a position on battery shape (color does not matter – we are going to delete it in the next step).

Shape 3 – select the battery shape, then the lightning bolt shape, use the Shape Merge SUBTRACT. Note: PowerPoint does some interesting things, in this example, the final shape is created visually in the correct orientation, but is actually rotated 326′.
