Chapter 25. Making Shapes Smart > Using the ShapeSheet Window

Using the ShapeSheet Window

In other parts of this book, the ShapeSheet window has been introduced as a way to complete certain tasks that can’t be done on the drawing page. But what exactly is the ShapeSheet window? “Shapes are ShapeSheets, and ShapeSheets are shapes,” said one of the authors of the ShapeSheet interface, who regards the window as simply another view of a shape. The graphical view is the shape you see on the drawing page. The ShapeSheet view looks beneath the surface to describe the geometry, formatting, and other settings that make up a shape, as Figure 25-1 shows. A section describes a particular behavior of a shape. For example, the Shape Transform section describes a shape’s general position.

Figure 25-1. The ShapeSheet window contains cells and formulas that control the geometry, formatting, and other characteristics of shapes.
