How to Insert Shapes in Word
You can add shapes to your document to illustrate your ideas. By using the Shapes menu, you can choose from dozens of different types of shapes.
The Shapes menu displays all the types of shapes available, organized into groups.
The mouse cursor changes to a crosshair.
Some shapes have prominent features that can be adjusted; these shapes will have a yellow adjustment handle.
Once you’ve added a shape, you can change its style, fill, outline color, and effects.
When you select a shape, the Format tab in the Drawing Tools ribbon group becomes available. Double-click a shape to automatically switch to the Format tab.
You can first apply a preset style from the gallery and then adjust the fill, outline, and effects to customize it.
You can also add text to shapes. Banners and callouts are best suited for text, but any shape can have text added to it.
The text appears inside the shape and can be formatted just like any other text.
Apply basic font formatting by using the Font and Paragraph groups on the Home tab or apply WordArt styles using the Format tab in the Drawing Tools ribbon group.
