Here’s how to add a shape to a spreadsheet:

  1. Select the Insert tab.
  2. Select Shapes from the Illustrations menu
  3. Select the shape that you want from the drop down menu.  The mouse pointer will become a “+” sign.
  4. Left-mouse click and release.
  5. You can move and/or alter the dimensions of the shape by dragging and dropping or clicking the sizing handles associated with the shape.


Here's an example of how shapes can be used to tie information together.
