Changing to a Different SmartArt Layout
Changing to a Different SmartArt Layout
The layouts are the graphic types. When you insert a SmartArt graphic you choose a type,
and you can change that type at any time later.
To change the layout type, use the Layouts gallery on the Design tab, as shown in Figure
10.14. You can open the gallery and click the desired type, or click More Layouts at the bot-

insert the new shapes with the Add Shape button. For a box of the same level, or of the
previously inserted level, click the top part of the button; for a subordinate or other rela-

top level, however, just as a company can have only one CEO.
When you insert a new shape in a Hierarchy graphic, four of the options are the same as
