Drawing AutoShapes

You can choose from many different AutoShapes, ranging from hearts to lightening bolts, to draw on your worksheets. The two most common AutoShapes, the oval and the rectangle, are available directly on the Drawing toolbar. The rest of the AutoShapes are organized into categories that you can view and select from the AutoShapes button on the Drawing toolbar. Once you have placed an AutoShape on a worksheet, you can resize it using the sizing handles (small white circles). Many AutoShapes have an adjustment handle, a small yellow diamond located near a resize handle, which you can drag to alter the shape of the AutoShape.

Draw an Oval or Rectangle

Click the Oval or Rectangle button on the Drawing toolbar.

Drag over the worksheet where you want to place the oval or rectangle. Press and hold Shift as you drag to draw a circle or square.

Release the mouse button when the object is the shape you want.

The shape you drew takes on the line color and fill color defined by the presentation's color scheme.
