Ovals are areal drawing elements. Figure 9-27 shows a red oval with a transparent background, which is a useful way to circle important ranges in a workbook.
Ovals, like rectangles, can be configured in the color and width of the outline border, and the color of the fill.
The properties of the oval can be altered with the Properties menu item in the context menu which appears when the mouse cursor is placed over the oval and one of the secondary mouse buttons is pressed.
The configuration of these properties is the same as the configuration of the rectangle properties explained above.
