** I figured out how to draw a sphere and then brung it into my powerpoint presentation but i noticed that there is a white ring around the coloured sphere. Once the sphere is pasted onto a coloured background the white ring sticks out like a sore thumb.

Can anyone show me how to get rid of the pesky white ring?

Hi Gino,

>> Can anyone show me how to get rid of the pesky white ring?

I'm not sure what makes a white ring show up in a PowerPoint presentation. If you need a 3D sphere in your PPT presentation, though, I'd suggest just creating the whole presentation, or at least the slide you need the sphere in, in Impress in OpenOffice.org. The same drawing tools are available in presentations as in drawings. Then choose File > Save As, save the Impress presentation in PowerPoint format, and open it in PowerPoint.

HTH,

How can I make half of a three-dimension object. For example, make half a sphere or cone? There is no intersect or substract with three-dimensional objects.

Hi Bruce,

>> "How can I make half of a three-dimension object. For example, make half a sphere or cone? There is no intersect or substract with three-dimensional objects."

I think there just isn't a way to do what you want. Not precisely. for the top half of a cone of course you just draw a cone but the bottom half isn't possible, and the left or right half isn't possible either.

There's a shape for half a sphere, either filled or unfilled, on the 3D palette.

Otherwise you could try drawing a shape, converting it to a bitmap, and cropping it or fiddling with it in Photoshop or Gimp, but that's not really what you want.

Just change the Rotation Angle to 180 degrees.

Merci!

Please excuse my ignorance, but are all these steps outlined above, for drawing and manipulating 3D Geometric shapes, based on Microsoft Office or
are they based on Openoffice? I am not familiar with the program but would like to know more about it.
Canh you help me here?

Hi Marg,

All of these steps, all procedures in this blog, are for OpenOffice.org.
