SMARTART OBJECTS ARE professionally designed graphics that combine shapes and text to show relationships, cycles, processes, and workflows. The graphics get their name because of the intelligence built into their design. As text is added into the SmartArt shapes, the text is automatically resized to fit the shape, and the text in all of the other shapes in the graphic are resized to match.
There are dozens of these SmartArt graphics included in Excel in seven categories, as described in Table 12-1. Several of these objects also allow you to add images to the selected graphic type.
