Hour 17. Manipulating Images > Using a Drawing Canvas

Using a Drawing Canvas

The drawing canvas provides an area on which you can draw multiple objects—including WordArt images—and keep them together as you manipulate them. If you place your drawing objects on a drawing canvas, you can treat them as a unit without having to group them together (see “Grouping Images” later in this hour).

As you learned in the last hour, when you draw shapes using drawing tools on the Drawing toolbar, Word automatically places them within a drawing canvas, as shown in Figure 17.21. (Note the black sizing handles on the drawing canvas.) If you haven't yet drawn any shapes but want to start with an empty canvas, you can choose Insert, Picture, New Drawing to insert an empty drawing canvas in your document, and then draw objects on top of it.
