What is a Pyramid Diagram ?

A pyramid diagram is a triangular shape that is divided into horizontal slices.
Each slice is then labelled and is used to represent a hierarchy.
This is often used to show the building blocks of a relationship.
A pyramid diagram flows either up or down.


Creating a Pyramid Diagram

Insert a blank slide and select (Insert > Diagram).
Select pyramid diagram from the Diagram Gallery dialog box and press OK


Inserting Shapes

The Diagrams toolbar is automatically displayed whenever a diagram is selected.
The first button on this toolbar is "Insert Shape" which can be used to insert more segments to your cycle diagram.
When inserting new shapes you should select an existing shape which you want the new shape inserted next to.


Move Shape Backward - Only available when AutoLayout is switched on.
Move Shape Forward - Only available when AutoLayout is switched on.
Reverse Diagram - Changes the labels at the bottom to be at the top and the labels at the top be at the bottom.

Things to Remember

  • If the text is too long and the labels run outside of the top slices you can insert manual line breaks by pressing (Shift + Enter).
