Shape Fills, Effects, and Line Properties

This portion of the <DrawingML> framework describes effects defining the visual appearance of shapes and lines. Shapes may be filled in a variety of ways, with images, solid colors, gradients, or pattern fills. In addition, several visual effects may alter the appearance of a shape, and multiple effects may be combined together. Lines also may have special properties defining how they are rendered, included a dashed appearance or decorations at the line ends. This section documents the elements that define these properties and effects for shapes and lines.
