You'll take a closer look at templates, stencils, and shapes in this practice session. You will create an organization chart by using a template. During that process, you will use the Shapes window, stencils, and the shapes themselves.

You will also start a diagram without using a template. This is where you will see how a template affects the functionality that is and isn't available to you.
