Part of series: BA027 Bullet Alternatives 027 – Capsules
Series Keywords: capsule, rounded-edge bar, icon
These little capsules work well as bullet alternatives, but they work equally well as an icon that can be used with many other frameworks or concepts. For a bullet alternative, the left side of the capsule can hold the main point/word/icon and the right side can hold the description.
Formatting these capsules can be fun. The series example shows the left portion of the capsule with imported cropped images. This is a nice clean look. You can also format the photographs with soft edges (PowerPoint 2007 or 2010 feature) on the left side of the capsule. Lots of possibilities for all PowerPoint users.
See the tutorial/FAQs for tips on formatting and usage.
Also see Chart of the month for October 2008 for another use for the capsules.
