When one tries to draw a rectangle in powepoint, one gets a default

ugly blue fill which I never use, with a thin black 0.75 point line,

which I also never use. I mostly draw white rectangles with 2 point

lines. So I always have to right-click the default thing and adjust the

autoshape properties. Is there a way to change the default properties

to the ones that I use most often?

    • After adjusting,

      Put a checkmark to "Defaults for new objects" and click ok.

      Alternately after adjusting,

      Right click on the autoshape, select Set AutoShape Defaults.

    • If you want a permenant default change

      Set up the shape how you want - set autoshape defaults then delete the slide

      and save as a design template (.pot) and name it "blank"
