Chapter 3. Adding Art to Office Documents > Drawing and Enhancing Objects

Drawing and Enhancing Objects

Drawn objects, like curved lines or lightning bolts, can enliven your document or help make your point. You can use the options on the Drawing toolbar to draw numerous objects without leaving your current program. After you add an object to your document, you can enhance it with a host of colors and special effects that reflect you, your practice, or your organization. Select the object you want to enhance, and then select the effect you prefer. To make your documents easy to read, don't add too many lines, shapes, or other objects to the same slide, spreadsheet, or page.

Draw Lines and Shapes

Display the Drawing toolbar, if necessary.

Click the AutoShapes button on the Drawing toolbar, point to Lines or Basic Shapes or any other option, and then select the line or shape you want.

Click in the document window, drag the pointer until the line or shape is the size you want, and then release the mouse button.

When you draw some curvy lines, you need to click the mouse button once for every curve you want, and then double-click to end the line.

If you make a mistake, press Delete while the line or shape is still selected, and then try again.
