Adding Shapes and Text Boxes
● Shape Effects Available effects are similar to the ones you can apply to pictures:
shadows, reflections, glows, soft edges, bevels, and three-dimensional rotation, each
of which is displayed in a Live Preview gallery.
All the settings available on the Format tab—and more—can also be configured in the
Format Shape dialog box. To view it, click the dialog box launcher (the arrow in the lower
right corner of the Shape Styles group on the Format tab) or right-click a shape and choose
INSIDE OUT Copy and move graphics and formatting
To copy or move a selected graphic or picture, you can use the Clipboard as you would
with ordinary text. The usual keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl+X for Cut, Ctrl+C for Copy, and
Ctrl+V for Paste), Home tab commands, and menu commands do the job.
But—just as you can with text—you can copy all the formatting for a graphic or
picture, which is handy when you need to apply extensive (but consistent) styles and
formats to many pictures. Use the Format Painter or use keyboard shortcuts: Ctrl+Shift+C
to copy formatting, and Ctrl+Shift+V to paste formatting. For more information, see
“Copying Formatting” on page 128.
