Arranging Pictures and Other Objects
Use the Shapes group tools as follows:
Edit in 2-D: When you click a shape, a 2-D version appears for more direct editing.
Change Shape: Change the selected shape into any of dozens of Word’s shapes.
Larger or Smaller: Expand or shrink the selected shape.
The Shape Styles group includes these choices for formatting a selected shape:
Shape Style Gallery: Choose from three dozen different patterns of outlines and fi fill.
Shape Fill: Choose your own custom fi fill for the selected shape.
Shape Outline: Choose a custom outline for the selected shape.
Shape Effects: Choose from a variety of effects — shadow, refl ection, glow, soft
edges, bevel, and 3-D — to change individual shapes.
When the entire SmartArt graphic is selected, some of the above settings apply to the background for the whole
shape. For example, you can apply a Shape Fill to the background for the SmartArt object.
The settings in the WordArt Styles group change the appearance of the text in the selected
shape.
Use the Chart choice in the Illustrations group of the Insert tab to add a chart in Word. Charts in Word work much like
charts in other office applications, so to learn about charting, refer to Chapter 18, “Getting Started Making Charts,”
and Chapter 23, “Working with Tables and Charts.”
Arranging Pictures and Other Objects
In addition to the Position and Wrap Text tools described earlier in the chapter, the
Arrange group of the Picture Tools and Drawing Tools Format tabs has tools for
working with the layering, alignment, grouping, and rotation of various types of Word graphics.
These additional tools are:
Bring Forward: When layering objects, moves the selected object one layer
forward. Click the arrow to choose the Bring to Front (brings to the top layer) or Bring
in Front of Text choices.
Send Backward: When layering objects, moves the selected object one layer
backward. Click the arrow to choose the Bring to Back (moves to the bottom layer) or
Send Behind Text choices.
