Chapter 21. Drawing in Word > Understanding How Word Drawings Work

Understanding How Word Drawings Work

Before you start working with Word's drawing tools, it helps to understand how Word drawings work.

Word drawings are vector drawings, which means that they are composed of lines and shapes. These lines and shapes, which Word calls drawing objects, can be edited separately or grouped to be edited together. They can also be layered, so that some components of your drawing appear "on top of" others. You'll learn how to use the grouping and layering tools later in the chapter; for now, it's just important to know they exist.
