Drawing and Modifying a Shape

Drawing and Modifying a Shape

You can use Word’s drawing tools to add shapes (drawing objects) to your documents. Drawing objects can add interest and impact to your message. Popular drawing objects include ovals, rectangles, lines, curves, and AutoShapes—more complex shapes such as stars and banners.

To draw a shape, you click a tool on the Drawing toolbar. Word then displays a drawing canvas. You drag the pointer across the drawing canvas to create a drawing object the size and shape you want. If you add multiple objects to the same drawing canvas, you can size and move the drawing canvas and the objects it contains as one unit.
