Ever since we made a switch to Microsoft Office 2007 at work, this has been bothering me.”How to change one shape to another?”
This is very useful feature, especially when you are using powerpoint.
In excel 2003 you could do this using drawing toolbar.
But what about excel 2007 (or powerpoint, word 2007) ?
Well, they didn’t take out that feature in 2007, they just hid it under layers of ribbon menu structure in office 2007.
Here is how you can change one shape to another in Office 2007:
Just select the shape, go to Format tab in the ribbon, click on the wierd looking shape that suggests you can edit points of a shape, there you will “change shape” option. Use it to change shapes in microsoft office 2007.
Do you use change shape feature often ?
I use it all the time, especially when I am making presentations and need to switch between shapes until I find the right combination.
