In PowerPoint 2010 you can draw any geometric figure and shape using the shapes feature. Here we will show you how easily draw a half circle or semicircle so you can use it in your powerpoint presentations.
The easiest way to draw a half circle in powerpoint 2010 is using the pie shape and then control the filled area with the yellow diamond. As you can see in the image, the first shape in the sample (pie shape on the left) is not a perfect semicircle, but if you drag the yellow diamond you can easily convert it to a half circle. You can use the same approach to create a quarter circle or even a three quarter circle.
If you are curious about how to make this kind of half circle we recommend you to check the older article how to draw a semicircle in powerpoint or learn more about how to use the yellow diamond in powerpoint.
