Drawing geometric shapes
Geometric shapes include:
Note: Independent of which type of geometric shape you draw or select for editing, the information field in the toolbar shows always only “Create Shape” or “Shape selected”.
Figure 15 shows part of the Drawing toolbar with the icons necessary for the following sections. They open floating toolbars with the relevant work tools.
Tip: The use of all these tools is similar to that of the Rectangle tool, even though they produce different geometric shapes.
If you choose the rectangle tool from this toolbar it looks the same as a rectangle drawn using the Rectangle tool on the Drawing toolbar. The only differences you will see are in the information field in the status bar.
The creation of flowcharts, organization charts and similar planning tools are described in Chapter 9 (Flow Diagrams, Organization Charts and More).
Note: These new callouts replace the old ones in Version 1. If you still need the old ones, you can add them manually to this or another toolbar.
You can add text to all these shapes. See Using text elements in Draw objects.
