How to Draw in MS Word


Microsoft Word is primarily known as a word processing program, but it also has a variety of drawing tools you can use to enhance your documents. For instance, you can draw individual lines in order to separate columns of text or lines that connect to other shapes when creating an organizational chart. Draw freeform shapes, curved lines or geometric shape using the tools in Microsoft Word.

Instructions

Open a Microsoft Word document.


Insert a drawing canvas to separate your drawing from text. You don't have to do this, but it makes it easier to draw multiple shapes and edit them as desired. Click the "Insert" tab, then "Shapes" in the "Illustrations" group. Click "New Drawing Canvas," and a large bounded box will appear in the document.

Click inside the drawing canvas. A "Format" tab will appear. Click the tab, and in the "Insert Shapes" group, click the small arrow in the bottom right corner to show all the shapes you can choose from.


Select a shape you want to insert in your drawing. For example, under "Lines," select a line, curve, arrow, freeform or scribble.


Click an area on the drawing canvas where you want to place the shape.


Drag your cursor to draw the shape. Press "Shift" while dragging to constrain proportions and draw a straight line or a perfect circle or square. On shapes such as lines or curves, you can end the shape by clicking near its starting point, which will close the shape. Double-click to leave the shape open.
