Drawing Diagrams

If you use Word to write procedures and create flowcharts, you’ll love the diagramming feature that is new in Word 2002. The built-in diagram tool enables you to create hierarchical diagrams in your document without ever leaving Word. Here are the steps:

  1. Choose Diagram from the Insert menu.

  2. In the Diagram Gallery (shown in Figure 7-8), click the type of chart you want to create. (If you’re not sure which chart you need, click the different chart types to see a basic description of each.) After you’ve selected the diagram you want, click OK.

    Figure 7-8. Word includes six types of diagrams you can create on the fly.

  3. The diagram appears in your work area, along with the Diagram toolbar. In addition, blocks of text are marked with the prompt Click to add text to show you where to add your own information (as shown in Figure 7-9).

    Figure 7-9. After you select the diagram type you want to create, Word makes the chart and displays both the Diagram toolbar and placeholder text you can replace with your own.

  4. Use the tools on the Diagram toolbar to add shapes, move diagram elements, apply formatting settings, or change to a different type of diagram.
