Adding a Predrawn Shape
You can insert predrawn shapes, such as triangles, arrows, circles, and rectangles, to
use as simple graphics.
Here are ways to add a predrawn shape:
Click Shapes in the toolbar, and then choose a shape from the pop-up menu.
Choose Insert > Shape >
Press the Option key as you click Shapes in the toolbar, and then choose a shape from
the pop-up menu; the pointer changes to a crosshair. Drag across the sheet to create
a shape the size you want. To constrain the shape’s proportions (for example, to keep
triangles equal on all sides), press the Shift key as you drag.
Drag the new shape wherever you want it on a sheet. To change the shape’s contours,
you must first make the shape editable; see “Editing Shapes” on page 203.
To learn about manipulating and aligning shapes, and changing their general object
properties, such as color, border style (stroke), size, orientation, shadows, and more, see
“Manipulating, Arranging, and Changing the Look of Objects” on page 212.
