Chapter 15. Drawing in Word > Drawing Lines and Other Basic Shapes

Drawing Lines and Other Basic Shapes

The simplest objects of a Word drawing are lines and basic shapes. You'll often find simple elements such as these at the heart of even complex drawings. In the next few sections, you'll learn how to create these graphical elements using Word's drawing tools.

Drawing a Straight Line

To draw a straight line in Word, click on the Line button on the Drawing toolbar; the mouse pointer changes to crosshairs. Next, click in the editing window where you want to begin the line and drag the mouse pointer to where you want the line to end (see Figure 15.5). Release the mouse pointer, and a line appears selected in your document.
