Drawing and Resizing Shapes

Word supplies AutoShapes ranging from hearts to lightening bolts to stars. The two most common AutoShapes, the oval and the rectangle, are available directly on the Drawing toolbar. When you select an AutoShape, the Drawing Canvas appears on the document, along with the Drawing Canvas toolbar. When you are done inserting your AutoShape, you can resize it using the sizing handles. Many AutoShapes have an adjustment handle, a small yellow diamond located near a resize handle that you can drag to alter the shape of the AutoShape. For precision when resizing, use Word's Format command to specify the new size of the shape. In addition to drawing AutoShapes, you can insert AutoShapes, such as computers and furniture, from the Clip Art task pane.
