Chapter 8. Using Excel's Drawing Tools > Introducing the Drawing Toolbar

Introducing the Drawing Toolbar

The Drawing toolbar is available through Excel, Word, and PowerPoint and offers the same set of tools in each application. The Drawing toolbar tools enable you to add shapes, lines, text boxes, artistic text, and clip art to your Office documents and manipulate them in terms of their size, placement, and colors.

Author's Note

Be aware that while not all of the drawing tools and commands available are covered in this chapter (nor are they all typically used in an Excel worksheet context), they are worth exploring on your own, if only to improve your use of them with Word and PowerPoint. In addition, the PhotoDraw application, shipped with the Professional and Premium editions of Office 2000, gives you even more tools for manipulating graphics, as well as retouching photographs.
