Improved shape merging
If you have ever tried to create anything with the drawing tools in an Offi ce app, you know
that it can be frustrating because the shapes provided don’t always match the shapes you
want. Offi ce 2013’s drawing tools contain several new commands and capabilities that make
the process of creating just the right shapes much easier. You can fi nd the Merge Shapes
button on the Insert Shapes group of the Drawing Tools
Format tab when two or more
shapes are selected. Clicking Merge Shapes opens a menu of merge types.
These new commands are all focused around merging two or more shapes into a single
shape, using actions like Union, Combine, Intersect, Fragment, and Subtract. For example,
suppose you want a shape that consists of a rounded rectangle with two arrows emerging
from it. You could start with the three separate shapes shown at the left in Figure 20.3 and
then use the Union command to join them into a single shape, as shown on the right.
