Drawing and Resizing Shapes

Word supplies ready-made shapes, ranging from hearts to lightning bolts to stars. The ready-made shapes are available directly on the Shapes gallery on the Insert and Format tabs. Once you have placed a shape on a document, you can resize it using the sizing handles. Many shapes have an adjustment handle, a small yellow diamond located near a resize handle that you can drag to alter the shape. When you resize or move objects, a live layout preview (New!) with your changes appear on the page. For precision when resizing, use the Size Dialog Box Launcher to specify the new size of the shape.
