Introduction
When you want to add objects to a workbook, you can use Microsoft Excel as a drawing
package. Excel offers a wide range of predesigned shapes, line options or freeform tools
that allow you to draw, size, and format your own shapes and forms.
You can add several types of drawing objects to your Excel workbooks—shapes, text
boxes, lines, and freeforms. Shapes are preset objects, such as stars, circles, or ovals. Text
boxes are objects with text, a shape without a border. Lines are simply the straight or
curved lines (arcs) that can connect two points or are used as arrows. Freeforms are irreg-
ular curves or polygons that you can create as a freehand drawing.
