AutoShapes: Word's Library of Predrawn Shapes

Word provides these categories of AutoShapes that are perfectly drawn for you:

  • Lines— Word's tools for creating free-form shapes and “scribbles.”

  • Connectors— New in Word 2002, these are straight lines, angled lines, curly lines, and arrows that can help you neatly connect any shapes you've inserted in a drawing.

  • Basic Shapes— 2D and 3D shapes, lightning bolts, suns, moons, hearts, smiley faces, and other commonly used shapes.

  • Block Arrows— 2D and 3D arrows that are fancier than the arrows covered earlier and can be filled with colors, patterns, or gradients.

  • Flowchart— Twenty-eight symbols most commonly used in building flowcharts.

  • Stars and Banners— Starbursts and other objects ideal for newspaper advertising and fliers.

  • Callouts— Text boxes connected to arrows: these allow you to annotate anything on a page in a single step.

  • More AutoShapes— Word 2002 displays the Insert Clip Art side pane, where you can choose from more than 100 additional AutoShapes.
