Exercise 1 - Working with SmartArt Graphics

SmartArt is a set of professionally designed diagrams made up of shapes and text.

In this exercise, you will learn:

  • How to insert and format SmartArt

You add a SmartArt diagram from the Insert tab. The SmartArt gallery is organized by design and purpose. The shapes in SmartArt can hold text, pictures, or both.

The parts of a SmartArt diagram are inserted into you document in a container that can be moved and resized. When you resize the container, the diagram is resized accordingly.

When SmartArt is selected in a document, two related tabs become available: Design and Format. The Design tab has options for the overall layout and color of the diagram. The Format tab has options for shape and WordArt formatting, and is very similar to the Drawing Tools Format tab.

You can add text directly to the shapes in a SmartArt diagram, or you can click the expand button on the left edge of the container to open the text pane.
