The background of geometric shapes, text boxes and graphic inserted into the MicroSoft Office documents can be colored with different types of filling: plain, using a texture or picture or a gradient. The question was asked by rochachana on the forum (25/06/13): How to color an object using two bold colors, with no gradients. E
This procedure was conducted under MS Office 2010, it can easily be adapted to other versions.
Right-click in the object
Select "Format Shape"
Select Fill / Gradient Fill / Angle:
Select 0% for a vertical separation.
Select 90% for a horizontal separation.
You will find 2 cursors on the "Gradient stops" slider. Simply move these cursors to the middle of the slider (the positions should read between 49% and 51% respectively).
If you leave the "Rotate with shape" option checked, the colors will be rotated along with the objects!
