Insert Shape In MS Word

After you add one or more shapes, you can add text, bullets, and numbering to them, and you can change their fill, outline, and other effects on the Format tab.

TIP: You can add individual shapes to a chart, or add shapes on top of a SmartArt graphic to customize the chart or the graphic. For more information about using charts or SmartArt in your documents, see When should I use a SmartArt graphic and when should I use a chart?
