Formatting lines and shapes

Use the Format menu to modify lines and shapes.

  1. Click on the shape or line to select it.

  2. Click Format in the menu bar. Some of the options may not be available (grayed out) because of the type of object selected. For example, if the object is a simple line, the Area choice will be unavailable because a line does not have an area to fill.

  3. Select one of the formatting options:

    • Line to set the characteristics of the line, including the border of an area (see “Formatting lines” on page 123).

    • Area to format the fill, or interior, of an object. This includes color, transparency, and pattern (see “Formatting areas“ on page 127).

    • Position and Size to move, rotate, and manipulate an object according to specified measurements (see “Moving, resizing and rotating a graphic object” on page 119).

    • Text to format the appearance of the text that can be added to any shape or line (see “Formatting text“ on page 144).

Most of these commands are also available for selection in the pop up menu that appears by right-clicking on the object.
