Chapter 2: Making a SmartArt Diagram
Choosing a diagram
The first step in creating a diagram is to select a layout in the Choose a
SmartArt Graphic dialog box, shown in Figure 2-1. To open this dialog box, go
to the Insert tab and click the SmartArt button. After you create the initial
diagram, you customize it to create a diagram of your own. About 140
diagrams are in the dialog box. They fall into these eight categories:
Diagram Type
Use
List
For describing blocks of related information as well as
sequential steps in a task, process, or workflow
Process
For describing how a concept or physical process
changes over time or is modified
Cycle
For illustrating a circular progression without a beginning
or end, or a relationship in which the components are in
balance
Hierarchy
For describing hierarchical relationships between people,
departments, and other entities, as well as portraying
branchlike relationships in which one decision or action
leads to another
Relationship
For describing the relationship between different
components (but not hierarchical relationships)
Matrix
For showing the relationship between quadrants
Pyramid
For showing proportional or hierarchical relationships
Picture
For creating diagrams that include photographs and
pictures (This catch-all category presents picture diagrams
from the other categories.)
