The text in diagrams shrinks as you enter more text so that all text is the
same size. If you want to make the text larger or smaller in one shape, see
“Changing fonts and font sizes on shapes” later in this chapter.
Entering bulleted lists on diagram shapes
Some diagram shapes have built-in bulleted lists, but no matter. Whether or
not a shape is prepared to be bulleted, you can enter bullets in a diagram
shape. Here are instructions for entering and removing bullets:
Entering a bulleted list: Select the shape that needs bullets, and on the
(SmartArt Tools) Design tab, click the Add Bullet button. Either enter
the bulleted items directly into the shape (pressing Enter as you type
each entry) or click the Text Pane button to open the Text pane (refer to
Figure 2-7) and enter bullets there.
Removing bulleted items: Click before the first bulleted entry and keep
pressing the Delete key until you have removed all the bulleted items.
You can also start in the Text pane (refer to Figure 2-7) and press the
Delete key there until you’ve removed the bulleted items, or drag to
select several bulleted items and then press Delete.
Changing a Diagram’s Direction
As long as your diagram is horizontally oriented, you can change its direction.
As shown in Figure 2-8, you can flip it over such that the rightmost shape in
your diagram becomes the leftmost shape, and what was the leftmost shape
becomes the rightmost shape. If arrows are in your diagram, the arrows point
the opposite direction after you flip the diagram. You can’t flip vertically
oriented diagrams this way. Sorry, but diagrams that run north to south, not west
to east, can’t be rolled over.
