What is the purpose of the rotate and adjustment handles?
When you drag an object’s rotate handle , which is the green circle, Word rotates the object
in the direction you drag the mouse. When you drag an object’s adjustment handle , which is
the yellow diamond, Word changes the object’s shape.

What if I wanted to delete a shape and start over?
With the shape selected, you would press the DELETE key.
To Apply a Shape Style
Word provides a Shape Styles gallery, allowing you to change the appearance of the shape. Because the
organization in this project, Heartland Tractor Club, supports many different tractor manufacturers, its letterhead
should use a color that is not commonly associated with a particular tractor manufacturer. The next steps apply a
shape style that uses a shade of brown.
