Drawing Lines and Arrows

The most basic drawing objects you can create on your worksheets are lines and arrows. Use the Line shape to create line segments or the Arrow shape to create arrows that emphasize key points in your workbook. You can quickly add multiple formatting to a line or arrow using Shape Quick Styles or change individual formatting—solid, dashed, or a combination—using the Shape Outline button and Format Shape pane (New!). The Shape Outline button lets you change the type of line or arrow. You can add arrowheads to any lines on your worksheet.
