Illustrations can really

enhance your document, and SmartArt makes using graphics especially easy. SMARTART GRAPHICS Word has a variety of SmartArt graphics which you can use to illustrate and organize many different types of ideas. To get the most out of SmartArt, you'll need to know how to insert a

SmartArt graphic, modify the color and effects, and change the organization of the graphic. SmartArt Graphics Movie TO INSERT A SMARTART ILLUSTRATION 1. 2. 3. Place the insertion point in the

document where you want the graphic to appear. Select the Insert tab. Select the SmartArt command in the Illustrations group. A dialog box appears. 4. 5. Select a category on the left of the dialog box and review the SmartArt graphics that

appear in the center. Select the desired SmartArt graphic and click OK. TO ADD TEXT TO A SMARTART GRAPHIC 1. 2. Select the graphic. A border will appear around it with an arrow on the left side.

Click the arrow on the left side of the graphic to open the task pane. 3. Enter text next to each bullet in the task pane. The information will appear in the graphic, and will resize to fit inside the shape. 4. To add a new shape, press Enter. A new

bullet will appear in the task pane, and a new shape will appear in the graphic. You can also add text by clicking on the desired shape and then typing your text. This works well if you only need to add text to a few shapes. However, for more complex SmartArt graphics, working in the task pane is often faster.

You can change the layout of a SmartArt graphic even after you've added text. However, if the new layout is very different from the old one, some of your text may not show up. Experiment with different layouts to see how they display your text differently. TO ADD A SHAPE TO A GRAPHIC 1. 2. 3.
