Changing Shapes for Objects

Change shapes when you want a specific object to be presented using a different geometric shape. This can be helpful when, for example, you need to visually differentiate or set apart a specific object.

The settings you enter are valid only during the current work session.

You can only change object shapes when the Design setting in the View Options dialog box is set to manual. For details, see The View Options Dialog Box

To change the shape of a specific object, proceed as follows.

  1. Click on the object you want to work with.
  2. Click on the menu options Object ® Change shape.

    A drop-down menu appears listing the shapes you may select from.

  3. Click on the shape you want to use.

The system changes the shape of the object.
