INTRODUCTION

You can create diagrams to show cycles, hierarchy patterns, and more. PowerPoint's diagram feature includes organizational charts , cycle, radial, pyramid, Venn, and target diagram types. When you add a diagram, PowerPoint inserts it onto your slide as a slide object, along with placeholder text.

TIP

Adding Organization Charts

Although classified as a type of diagram, organization charts work a bit differently. See the task "Adding an Organization Chart" to learn how to add one to your slide.

TIP

Building a Diagram from Scratch

You need not use a layout that contains a diagram placeholder; you can add a new diagram to any slide. Simply click the Insert Diagram button on the Drawing toolbar and add a diagram as shown in these steps.

Resizing Diagrams

Click the Layout button on the Diagram toolbar to reveal several commands for controlling the size of the diagram. Select the Fit Diagram to Contents command to resize the diagram around the current contents.
