Shapes I: Introductory basics you can't live without

Special arrow and Drawing toolbar

You can create your own shapes by using the Drawing toolbar.

If you can't find the shape you need in Visio, you can always draw your own shape. Your own shape can be simple or complex, from a wiggly line to a piece of custom office equipment.

How to draw your own shapes is beyond the scope of this course. The tip of the iceberg is the Drawing toolbar, shown here. It lets you create shapes from scratch by using simple tools.

For more information on drawing your own shapes, see the additional resources in the Quick Reference Card.
