Chapter 8. Adding and Editing Drawings > To draw a simple shape

To draw a simple shape

1.
Turn on the Drawing toolbar, then click one of the toolbar’s four simple shapes (line, arrow, rectangle, or oval) (Figure 8.3).

Figure 8.3. To draw a simple shape, click the toolbar’s line, arrow, rectangle, or oval icon.


2.
Click and drag in the page where you want the shape to appear (left, Figure 8.4). Release the cursor when the shape reaches the desired size (you can adjust its location and size later). The shape will appear on the page, with small circles marking its boundary (right, Figure 8.4). For more information on moving or adjusting a shape, see Changing Drawn Objects.

Figure 8.4. Whether you add an arrow, rectangle, or circle, the click-and-drag basics of drawing the shape remain the same.
