Add symbols to your diagram

After you open a template, the two most common ways to add symbols to your diagram are by dragging a symbol from a library or by drawing an object with the drawing tools. It really is that simple. And you don't need to position the symbols precisely right away — you can refine your diagram as you go.


To drag a shape from a library:
    1. To show the symbols on a library, click the library title bar.
    2. Drag a symbol from a library onto the drawing.

To draw a symbol using the drawing tools:
    1. On the Home tab, in the Insert group, click Shapes.

    2. Click the shape that you want, click anywhere in the document, and then drag to place the shape.

Note: To create a perfect square or circle (or constrain the dimensions of other shapes), press and hold SHIFT while you drag.

To delete a symbol from your diagram:
    1. Click the symbol, and then press the DELETE key.

Note: You can't drag a symbol back onto a library to delete it.

Sometimes you can't find all the symbols you want on the libraries that the template opens. For example, when you open the Basic Flowchart template, it opens four libraries: Backgrounds, Borders and Titles, Arrow and Connectors, and Basic Flowchart Symbols. You'll find most of the symbols you need for a flowchart on these libraries, but you may want to add computer symbols to your flowchart. If so, you can just open a few libraries until you find the symbol you want.

To open other libraries:
1. Click the Open Library button on the Library Toolbar
