Using the Text Pane with SmartArt Graphics
After you create a layout for a SmartArt graphic, a Text pane appears next to your selected
SmartArt graphic. The bottom of the Text pane displays a description of the SmartArt
graphic. The Text pane and SmartArt graphic contain placeholder text. You can change
the placeholder text in the Text pane or directly in the SmartArt graphic. The Text pane
works like an outline or a bulleted list and the text corresponds directly with the shape text
in the SmartArt graphic. As you add and edit content, the SmartArt graphic automatically
updates, adding or removing shapes as needed while maintaining the design. If you see a
red “x” in the Text pane, it means that the SmartArt graphic contains a fixed number of
shapes, such as Counterbalance Arrows (only two).
