<custGeom> (Custom Geometry)

This element specifies the existence of a custom geometric shape. This shape will consist of a series of lines and curves described within a creation path. In addition to this there may also be adjust values, guides, adjust handles, connection sites and an inscribed rectangle specified for this custom geometric shape.

  <a:rect l="0" t="0" r="0" b="0"/>
    <a:path w="2650602" h="1261641">
        <a:pt x="0" y="1261641"/>
        <a:pt x="2650602" y="1261641"/>
        <a:pt x="1226916" y="0"/>

The custom geometry above is drawn by first moving to a specific starting point with the <moveTo> element. Then a series of <lnTo> elements in the creation path specify the lines that make up the borders of the shape and finally a <close> element is used to specify the end of the creation path. The resulting shape is shown above. ]
